"A day without laughter is a day wasted" -Charlie Chaplin


I always thought I was smart

The smart that society wants from me

The smart that everyone knows

I'm not smart

 

I always thought I matter

That one day I would matter to others

The way others matter to me

I don’t matter

 

It's not about being smart

It's not about mattering

By society standards

 

I am smart

I do matter

Maybe not to society

But to me
