Self Portrait



Paint me a picture with Music and Heart-

begin with the Beat and continue it on.

Next write the Melody flowing and free,

now you're part-way to a picture of me!


Add the sky to my eyes, and the sea to my Soul;

so I may soar with the clouds, and be one with the earth.

You're halfway there, don't give up quite yet
or else you will not have a finished object.

Pour into me the joy of the world


and let me feel Love without regret.

It’s the final stretch to the finished product

make sure that the image is fully hypnotic.


Now for the Bass and the Harmony too-

an ability to see the good in everyone else;

with this Freedom and care which to this you apply-

you can know you have painted a picture of I.
