Emily Dickinson - Not to discover weakness is

Not to discover weakness is
The Artifice of strength --
Impregnability inheres
As much through Consciousness

Of faith of others in itself
As Pyramidal Nerve
Behind the most unconscious clock
What skilful Pointers move --

Im 12 years old and I think I have discovered all my weaknesses or at least I think and this poem makes me wonder what I would be like because Im not that smart Im not athletic and from this comment you have proububly relized I can't spell either but what if I hadn't ever known these things whould I be a different person? Well I guess i'll never know but thanks for the thought Emily.
