Daily Prompt: Genius

You were born this way

An exceptional intellectual creatively powering the universe with your natural ability

You define who you are with your essential grace

You are the fairytale in a world where the real just isn’t enough because the imagination has been replaced

Erased and scribbled over with laws that try to limit who you really are

You’re a cosmic star in the matter of space

Shining bright like the diamond with no shape

You can’t be defined

Your true genius is undermined because of the eclectic projections are taken into consideration via their own perceptions

They could never understand the way you cultivate the hearts of those who deserve so much better

You are who you are

A prodigy of indifference towards hate because your love is the flair of your genius

  1. Evening, Miss Bae!

    I thought it only right to drop by with a hello of my own. I love poetry, to start. And this poem I like quite a lot. You’re very good with words. This poem, the way one sentence flows to the next, it’s something I can read and reread. For that, I thank you. As a second to what I have to say, I’d like to point out my favorite part:

    “You’re a cosmic star in the matter of space
    Shining bright like the diamond with no shape
    You can’t be defined”

    You Can’t Be Define – now THAT is a powerful statement. Beyond this world, impossibly large but lacking a shape, something that cannot be molded into anything other than what it wants to be. This alone, I think, is a wonder all its own. The idea that we cannot be defined by another, I like that. I like it a lot, I must say.

    Great job on this and keep up the good work!

    1. Wow I don’t even know what to say besides thank you for reading and taking the time out to write such a heartfelt comment.

      I am marveling in gratitude not just because you read my poem but you understood and then dug deeper.

      This is how artist function we pull things from each other to grow and strengthen our gifts. We cannot be defined. We don’t fit unless we want to and even then internally we may refuse to.

      Thanks. Please come by and leave a comment anytime.
