Genius at Work
You have proven it again, the aim of man,
The time-honored quote I paraphrase.
Through efforts focused, diligent, one can
Conquer daunting challenges, deserving praise.
That, taking a corner, seeing there a whole,
Search for the lacking part in what is there,
See potential in the mix, bent on the goal,
Use both work and breaks to solve and to repair.
With native ability and practice, won,
By searching and applying, achieving gains,
It can be seen borne out, all said and done,
Genius, indeed, plays out in infinite pains.
