It’s not a skinny jean
or a Techno beat
Nor a symmetrical face
or a North Face Fleece
It’s not a pocket full-of-cash
or a Wicker Park address
Nor is it a college kegger
or celebrity status
It’s not about who you know;
it’s about knowing you
‘to thine self, be true’
It’s not about following the herd;
rather, nurturing your inner-nerd.
It’s about empathy and kindness,
It’s not about the west vs. the east
-nor rural roads or city streets.
It’s about tearing down the walls all around town
turning the world upside-down.
I love coffee, gadgets, riding bikes, eating good food and having good conversation.
