The books of all books

The mind of all minds

Not always politically correct

And the values sometimes questionable

The knowledge sometimes excessive

The theories always intriguing

The relationships shown to me are life-long

Taught me to strive for the moon

And if I fall I’ll land on the stars

Taught me to strive for failure

Fail all the time

But to never fail the same way twice

Told me I’m better than a minimum wage job

And knowledge is the key to success

Taught me social skills

To get out of my comfort zone

Taught me to grow

To learn

To have a voice

To defy standards and stereotypes

To break norms and traditions

To be open-minded and strive to understand others

My best friend,

Only known for a year

Taught me a lifelong number of lessons

He's the brain of all brains

He’s the mind of all minds

So diverse and cultural

So knowledgeable and understanding

He taught me a new way of life

A new purpose of living

And now a new future

This poem is about: 
Me
