When I was six
I was told I couldn’t play the piano,
at that age, I was too old,
my mother wasn’t to know.
When I was thirteen,
my singing career came to a stop,
my voice broke,
I never sang another note.
When I was in year 12,
I was told, I couldn’t design buildings,
“You’re a business student." Shake of the head.
And I went to one of the best schools there is.
When I was twenty, I got a guitar,
I taught myself in my room.
Not long after my housemate
smashed it, being dramatic, and cute.
And, once again, it was too late.
But, I wrote it down from an early age,
that much I could save.
