I Am The Conductor

I am the conductor of my life.

Life Conductor

I am the author.


Of my words and my lyrics.

And the composer of my music.

Lyrics and Music

I dance within my rhythm.


Dance Alone

Or, with others,

Combining the passions of our creative energies.

Creative Energies

I am the performer,

Of the creation of my life.

I will play the drama.

I will be hardy with my laugh.

My angst will be emphatic.

My joys will be celebrated.

Until the final bow.

The Final Bow

And I will pray for my encore.



I originally created this when I first began doodling. Β I was going to update the pictures.

But I love where I started.
