The Love Song of Mario Balotelli

I think I am a genius,
but not a rebel.
I have my life, my world,
I do what I want,
without annoying anyone.
I believe I am more intelligent
than the average person.
It is said that geniuses are misunderstood.
So perhaps genius is so different
that people don’t understand.
The talent God gave me is beautiful and wonderful,
but it is difficult
because you are always facing other people keen to judge you.
There are few people with such talent,
so there are few able to judge
what I am doing.
