A Great Mind

A great mind is a curse and a blessing, 
It is the engineer of furtherment;
Yet, it is loathed by its inheritor.

It begets its host a wealth of stardom,
Though this abundance of fame is detested;
For it reaps far more suffering than joy.

The constant attempt at normalcy,
The ineludible mental anguish;
This is what plagues the life of a genius.

Forever shall the gift of brilliance be condemned,
By beholder and spectator alike;
Because in all of its greatness, envy grows.

An envy so fierce that it forges hate,
And in its wake, not but regret remains;
Thus, a great mind is taken from the world.
Yet in its loss, something emerges. Hope.

    Hi well said, indeed. Normalcy, being PC following trends is death for me. Have NO desire to follow the crowd or be the lead sheep. What price glory? Panagiota
