Ad - Poem by Yoni Assis

That's me
Like no other
Meant to be

Be unique
Have mystique
Expose your freak
Can't be meek

Your legacy matters
That's not some chatter
Establish your mark
Gnaw on the bark

Don't conform
Be reborn
The Phoenix would approve
Up to you to choose

< br>Help

The clock is ticking
Or didn't you know?
Ostrich no more
Your time to soar

That's me
Make your own name
Finally break free

    So the story behind this one is that I wanted to write something called 'AD' (i.e. me) . A nice portion of the pieces in this collection first started with a title (Embers, for example) , and then working from that. I'm big into the aesthetic of names. But this one came together pretty quickly. It really does capture the importance I put on individual creativity. I'm preaching to the choir, I know you know what I'm talking about. (Report) Reply

    I'm loving it! Makes me picture you at a turntable or something just spinning away! Definitely fly that freak flag, fly it high and proud, AD! (Report) Reply
