A Caged Bird (Poem)

{I see myself, but it doesn’t look like me, I see myself – but what should I be? Yes, what should I be? And what should I become? Be a dreamer – or achiever – you can only pick one.} “Ohhh, you want the bullet train to fame my boy?” No, no, no! Just theContinue reading “A Caged Bird (Poem)”

Wake up, and Smell the Coffee
