Growing up

Out of the Rat Race!

imageThe shelved Ambitions

As we awake even before our

Dreams begin

Drag our bodies to the shower

Prepare a quick toast

And walk out the door

Five mornings a week

Before the sun can claim the

Day as it’s own


Mounting Pressures

As adulthood piles up

Responsibilities and making ends


Loved ones asking

For a loaf of bread

And the chosen of them

Already entitled to a fixed



Dreams fading

As they seem less impossible

With each laboring day…

Stuck in the rat race that

Affords you no pause

No luxury

Even for your protruding pregnancy


Till you scream it Ends Now

Till you utilize the knowledge

Accumulated at College

Only theorized before now

And allow them refine your able


Knowledge put to wisdom

Ready to create and mold

A visionary entrepreneur

Into the world’s next Business Giant!
