Brilliance to Idiocy

Between intelligence and lack of it....
known as idiocy....
there is but a hairline difference
as in a wise man and his wisdom
a madman's simple existence

I for one
most of the times,
am inordinately intelligent...
but in the OPAQUENESS of cataract of both eyes
it seems like wise
an idiot!
to someone

intelligence, brilliance and idiocy
need to eventually compromise
else we all seem to be blind...

Man inherits genes
some are good
some mean

but then where has one been
to bear the brunt of idiosyncrasy
no one can say....
nor ask of me

Brilliance defines the capacity of others assessment
so does idiocy...
but then the two also define the assessor
who so ever one may be
we all human beings...
love to live free

including you
the intelligent
and me
the idiot!

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


in case the castle fell...the king would be problem there..
the church watching over approving the next king on the new throne.
walls being what they remain still stand..
