Doodling on a rainy day


I strive to learn, to be wise

when I should know myself first


I become stuck exploring

words, meaning, concept.


My mind lives in the sky

my  feet not on earth.


To accomplish something

I should participate.


If I ask the gods for assistance

I will be required to act.


Achievement requires effort

For geniuses, more effort.


For a lesser mind, my mind

how could I ask for less?


And I should be troubled.
