"Break out of the mold."
I once was told
by a teacher who treated me kind

"Don't run with the pack."
said my pal Jack
"Don't be ready to follow them blind."

The die is not cast
forms may not last
carve the best from whatever you find

Do the best you can
be your own man
craft a model that shapes your mind

And when you are dead
let it be said
that your pattern was sculpted, not mined
