"The whole purpose of places like Starbucks is for people with no decision-making ability whatsoever to make six decisions just to buy one cup of coffee. Short, tall, light, dark, caf, decaf, low-fat, non-fat, etc. So people who don\’t know what the hell they\’re doing or who on earth they are can, for only $2.95, get not just a cup of coffee but an absolutely defining sense of self: Tall. Decaf. Cappuccino."

identity is something
   that impacts our global
       community 

   can you imagine 
      for a moment please
          how different 
              your specific 
          life would be
      in the absence 
  of something so integral 
    to not only my life\’s blood 
        but all the other inhabitants 
            on our planet

   to genuinely 
       know who you are
           is an immense gift 
       albeit never easy when one\’s 
          mission reveals itself 
             at a tender age 

      nevertheless 
         fear of our inner core 
            should cease to exist 
         anxiety travels in tsunami 
             sized waves — which at time
                 i suppose would render 
            a tremendous amount 
                of trepidation 

       however 
          the only one
             responsible 
                 for your epic tale
                      is you 

    i know one thing for sure
        my story will NEVER involve
            coffee — well unless 
                 you\’d like to see 
                     how the caffeine 
              interacts with a manic 
          system ignited by just 
      one little bean — i\’ll process 
  and sit in my oubliette 
with a delicious cup 
  of steeped sweet 
       ice tea
