    In tune with the universe
    sporting a five o' clock shadow
    pondering how insignificant I am
    made in the image of a vague god
    faithfully doing a rendition of "my thing"
    allow me to share with you what I've come
    to believe to be true; and that is that God is Love.

    As the product of Intelligent Design, I can't tell you
    how many times I have failed. As a youth, I just knew
    it had to be me. As I grew, so did my boundless ego. Life
    would occasionally knock me down a peg or two, but
    like any true warrior I would pick myself up again.
    This went on like a game of one on one b-ball
    with me deploying a man on man strategy
    to no end.

    You see, I have a tendency to turnover the ball
    by design it seems. I put in work on my game
    making a name for myself ~

    In the end, however
    I'm still a man... and there is
    no such thing as a self-made man.
