If I am Algebra,
Then you must be Geometry,
All sectors and angular views.
Yes, I can see the resemblance
You bear to that course I suffered
From in freshmen year.

I am equations
And equal signs,
Each concept taught
With perfectly moderate sense.
I am absolute values and
Imaginary numbers
When Iā€™m in my
Individualistic mood.

But you are all
Proofs and theorems ā€“
I made flashcards to
Memorize those for the test ā€“
Memorization and right-brain sense,
Neither as easy to forget.

I am a writer
And a landscape painter.
You are a social theorist
And an outspoken prodigy.
I am plain sunny skies,
Clear and blue for all to see.
And you are hard to understand
Like the cloudy sky
Of the darkest, most mystical night.

Yeah...come to think of it, the last verse is a little out of it.

Sure :)

I love this poem, but I don't think the last verse really fits with the others. Maybe because it's not comparing people to math class any more. It might be better as a separate poem.

Could you comment on some of my peices?
