As a child I was born
through chosen parents below.
Found with emotions swirling,

Longing for the world of dreams within my broken soul,
and night after night from the pillow of tears...

Found a girl and foolishly thought it to be love.
Life seems to have some sense of direction,
and noone is giving me a shove,
but at that moment I looked in the mirror and asked,
Is there a Divine reflection?

It's discouraging to be confronted with the questionable popularity of modern rap, grunge and death metal that can be defined as one hit wonders that will leave an entire decade wondering, "what happened?" This music will not be recognized or played in the future, because it has no sustaining value. The only way that it moves someone is out of the room, and straight to the toilet.
It's very comforting to progressive rock fans around the globe that there are dedicate
