Perhaps, like me, you’ve made or are thinking about making a major life change. If so, I hope you find this poem as inspirational as I do.

No Leaders Please

By Charles Bukowski

invent yourself and then reinvent 

yourself.

don’t swim in the same slough.

invent yourself and then reinvent 

yourself 

and 

stay out of the clutches of mediocrity.

invent yourself and then reinvent 

yourself.

change your tone and shape so often

that they can

never

categorize you.
