Maxim for Mavericks

The Maverick – A poem by Kent Healy

Beyond the constraints of a monotonous environment
Emerges a free mind choosing empowerment
Remaining free in spirit and in mind
The Maverick breaks through the tiresome conventional bind
Without regard to the status quo
There is much more out there, that they know
Always searching and thinking too
Never taking “no” for an answer, only “yes” will do
They inspire, create, invent, and explore
Allowing those around them to grow, know, and experience more
Their insatiable curiosity and compassion for life
Drives them to seek ways to eradicate strife
With a passion to serve
They help others create the life they deserve
And although nothing is certain, they will take a chance
The Maverick never ceases to ask the hand of opportunity for a dance
They blaze their own path pushing aside the imitations
Helping themselves and others exceed their own expectations
“You can’t do that,” they are told
But they always step forward, acting bold
They break the conformist mold and risk looking like a fool
But in the process they become the exception to the rule
The Maverick will not stop
Refusing to give up until they’re at the top
They define success and what it means to live
By accepting nothing less than the best they can give
They step up to the challenge and never abandon the cause
Helping humanity advance past its flaws
Because they think they can, the Maverick always will
They understand and use the power of free will
