When Curiosity Doesn't Kill You……YOU LEARN. More Than Just a Breathe of Fresh Air

I’ve Learned; Beautiful and Smart

And it took twenty six years
for her
to tell me
I was beautiful
twenty six years
for him
to tell me
I was smart
yet I wonder
if it was because
I had not heard it
all these years
or they simply
could not understand it?
These are the ways
the unspoken goes.

On to school age
I’d go,
and the only way
to tell
if I was smart
was how fast
I was at learning…
if I wanted
as the amnesia began,
And the only way
to tell
if I was beautiful
was from someone
or something Else’s
shallow attempts.
These are the ways
the unspoken goes.

But I knew
there was beauty
in the way
I’d gravitate
towards the lonely
and left out.
and I knew
it was smart
to have it come
all so easy,
and I knew
there was beauty and brains
behind the actions
of someone
who knew more
than it seemed,
but these are the ways
the unspoken goes.

Will a day come
where I no longer
need to defend myself
or prove
what they heard
was not true
and what they saw
there was more to?
to those who see it
without being told
I will recognize
I’ll notice how
our eyes know
more than we show
because you are
beautiful and smart.
And these are the ways
the unspoken goes.
