  • Ways to express oneself beautifully.
  • All different styles, no right, no wrong.
  • We have many an opportunity;
  • Whether it be dance, music, words or song.
  • To show what we know, what we believe in.
  • If we use our imagination, we,
  • Can discover a thing that makes us grin.
  • Just try, give it a shot, and you will see.
  • Paint your words on the blank canvas of life.
  • Eighty-eight eager keys hoping, waiting,
  • To be played be a girl whose heart is rife.
  • The music floating through the air stating
  • That thou is not afraid to be the one
  • A true artist's work will never be done.
