"Sharp as a tack" is what they say.
"He'll be running our country one of these days."
It's a lot of pressure for me to bear.
Must be on my best - all times, everywhere.

A 4.0 average, make no mistakes.
Quick on my feet, whatever it takes.
Talent and skills, abundance of smarts,
Charisma, athletic, and knack for the arts.

I'm lonely a lot, not much time for friends.
I must use my gifts, as they have been given.
"Sharp as a tack" is what they say.
I'm fine with that. God made me this way.

-------
"He has a sharp wit" is what they all say.
I joke and I laugh most of the day.
Always so funny and quick on my feet,
The most likable guy you ever did meet!

The class clown for sure, giggles abound.
My gift is a smile to others around.
Sometimes it's tough to play such a part.
Always "on stage" portraying this art.

I don't know why this talent is mine.
It all comes so natural, this comical line.
"He has a sharp wit" is what they all say.
I'm fine with that. God made me this way.

-------
"Not the sharpest knife in the drawer" they say.
Try being me for only a day.
I am a slow learner. I walk with a limp.
I have trouble speaking. They call me a wimp.

I'm really not different on the inside.
My feelings are real. I've nothing to hide.
I cannot express them the way that you do.
I'm trapped in a body that's broken in two.

They say that I'm "special" and I must agree.
I don't know anyone else quite like me.
"Not the sharpest knife in the drawer" they say.
I'm fine with that. God made me this way.

Are there three different people and if not, I am wondering what happened to this gentleman. The last part shows real insight into what it is like for those living with a disability. Great message, God uses the weak to perform His purposes. Your meter and rhyming is very good. This left me wanting more.

"God made me this way". Beautiful, powerful, enjoyable - thank you.

Wow this is positively stunning! I think this is one of my all-time favorites. I can't believe it didn't rank higher. You really captured the inner thoughts of three distinct personalities who all have at least two things in common--it's not always easy being me and God made me that way for a reason. This is awesome. With your permission I'd love to reprint this in my church's newsletter. I think it speaks volumes and though I can't pay you for using it, I know it will touch so many hearts. Again I say Wow!
Congratulations on ranking 11th in level one!

Wow! Thank you so much!! I would be honored for you to use this. My prayer is that it will bless others.
