Clever

You always were so clever in how you lived your life,
How you joked and laughed and smiled, and how you dealt with strife,
You had the perfect answer when the time was right,
And you always found a way to win every single fight.
You always were so clever but you missed the biggest part.
You think that life is nothing more than showing that you're smart,
When really life is all about being loved forever.
And now that you are alone I bet you don"t feel so clever.

    You are accurately right, with no need to turn left. Just like the saying, 'you don't no what you've got, until it's gone'. Your poem; simply lacks nothing. well done Star. kingfemi.

    I thought you were clever to write this piece. It has decent descriptiveness and rhyming.

    You have good rhythm, but I thought the rhymes were cliche. Other than that, I appreciated the subject of your poem quite a bit and I completely agree--life is more about being an egomaniac. Life is about being a part of something, of someone other.
