A Little About A Lot


A Little About A Lot
By Nabih Saliba

To know a lot about a little
Or a little about a lot
Is a thing we should consider
But in practice often not

If a lot about a little
Then an expert you will be
Of the few things you have studied
Or have done repeatedly

Should you choose a lighter focus
For the things that you can learn
Then your interests will be wider
With all details no concern

If an expert on a subject
Or someone who knows a lot
Be it narrow or unfocused
Make the most of what you’ve got

In the end it only matters
If you help your fellow man
Use what knowledge you’ve been given
To help us be the best we can

To know a lot about a little
Or a little about a lot
Is not the thing that matters

But in practice means a lot.
