One Person's Flaw is Another Person's Skill



What use is knowing the capitals of the UK, France, Russia and Spain?

Or knowing where the heck is China, Peru, or Bahrain?

You suck at science and geometry,

The one thing you're good at? Geography?

Completely useless. It's a flaw.

But to them I wanted to prove them and say "Not at all."

I educated others to learn about the past history

To many the names of conquerers or presidents were a mystery.

I taught through animated maps I made myself

Suddenly my talents aren't something to be left on a shelf.

On the internet I taught so many so much.

I developed a fan base and as such

I am grateful that I took my flaw and turned it into a skill

That could help others learn as their brains fill.
