If I Were a Person So Smart


“A person’s world is only as big as their heart.”-Tanya A Moore

If we were persons so smart

If we had the power

If we could empower

If we had an ivory tower

If we had this and if we had that!

Tis becoming old hat.

What would you say

What would you pay

What would I pay?

A mere pittance, not I

I would heed the call

I would give it my all

Whether big or small

I would keep my world

From a downward swirl

I would give from my heart

If I were a person so smart.

What would you do? It’s your world too.




The challenge is to use the quote or the author as inspiration;
post a story…fiction or non-fiction, a poem, a commentary, opinion or a picture. Patricia’s Place

  2. Thank you for commenting. 😉


  3. Hmm. I would love to do a lot with it. First, educate people to think more kindly of each other.


  4. I totally agree, I would give it my all!


  5. I think there is a difference between being smart and having sense. Ideally, we should strive for both of these. It could change the world.


  6. I would like to say I give it my all but I don’t. I tend to hold back a bit…more than a bit. Don’t know if it is due to fear or selfishness or maybe laziness. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with In Other Words and making me think!
