11 of 12 given words:
away water boat rain sing play 
watch sway rock spilling cry

very much away from all others 
in the water drifting in a boat
rain or shine no one bothers
able to carry a substantial load

to sing and play alone
all in his mind amidst books
in the library quiet as a stone
unmoved by all the looks

watch him sway to engage
careful not to rock the boat
spilling out all the knowledge
but restrained not to cry out loud

not unlike a nerd all by himself
but a bookworm with all the drive

  1. The nerds and bookworms, with interests away from the others are often the ones who make something of themselves, have the "drive" as you say.

  2. Wonderful read Hank. Food fot thought.

    Take care.

  3. It is always good to meet people that are different from ourselves.
