YOUNG POET:

It is because I love <3 you that I need to tell you that it will take you a long time to be a poet. Sometimes you will be poor. You may not be able to afford a hamburger.

[<--BUN; <--MEAT] [WANT]

It is okay. Listen to your most essential self and follow it. It is your destiny...

[*** <--THE STARS]
