    I am the one others say is too good to be true
    I am the brother that enjoys doing what he do
    I am the one who encourages the hearts of others
    I am the one who inspires his sisters and brothers
    I am quiet yet my words are clearly heard
    I am gentle as the melody of a bird
    I am what I write and nothing less
    Yet there is much more I must confess
    More than education, more than creative flow
    More than words of imagery, more than gift a prose
    My life is directed by he who sits high and looks low
    He who is the one who gifted me with this flow
    All praise to the Lord above for his Divine Creativity
    For allowing this humble servant to simply be.
