447. I am a genius

I am a dependent genius.
I depend on the world’s appreciation.
  I am happy.

I am a dependable genius.
The world depends on me.
I am really miserable.
  I have no holidays.

I am an independent genius.
I am really happy
  Because
I don’t depend on the world’s appreciation
  And
The world does not depend on my genius.
The world is free to bark.
I am free to bray.
