Hey there! So, I stumbled upon this cool poem called “The Chaos” by Gerard Nolst Trenité. It’s this crazy, brilliant take on the chaos of English language. It totally blew my mind! Got me thinking about all the giants among us, you know, those super-talented folks.

That’s what inspired me to write this little ode. It’s like a chat about life, envy, contentment, and the scattered thoughts we all have.

On Giants

Filled with awe for

Giants amongst us, men

And women bursting

With talent galore

Evergreen glades of fables,

and lore, shimmering

Through minds of grand bards.

Awakening emotions

Of us minions. 

The ones who must seethe,

A gust of envy blows in,

Our hearts; hollow hills.

Yet, battling fiercely 

As well, is soft contentment, 

Finding it’s just place

Settling into crags

Of scattered thoughts, feelings

Profound with wisdom. 

We agree, we bow, 

They observe it all, we learn,

Holding hands with them.
