where does it come from

whose to say

the back of the mind

or perhaps

the front of the brain

and just who dared to venture

to give it a name

some poor culprit named need

or maybe a nice Mr. in France

or some stately Senor in Spain

God is at the main helm of this

you can be assured

why he has been very good indeed

to myself

he gave me a talent for the truly


if you choose to believe in yourself

and whatever it is that your talent

may be

that very belief will take you far

but don't let it lead you into a

greedy life of nothing more than

me, me, me

otherwise you will crash and burn

faster than any shooting star

trust me on this one..............
