Poetic Dan

What's truly earned can't be taken

She walked up with grace not letting her nerves win the race

This being only the second time to be preforming again live

To the little girl who played piano with her toes

Now writing and playing all on her own, wings nearly fully grown

No poem could convey the pride that sits with my soul

A beautiful gift to treasure watching time unfold

No one can take away what they never truly earned.

    Well that gal is gonna go far if thats only a 2nd open mike gig Dan. Now she should do some home/portastudio recordings to build the dynamics/mic tecnique which is never easy/impossible in a pub environment cos theres too much other noise going on. Great to see she's got the confidence. You're a proud dad eh?

    • Poetic Dan

      Yes she wants to apply to preforming arts and used this to learn a bit more, someone even come up after and offered to give lessons for all that you spoke off!

      This year she will shine so bright and yes my proudness feeling like nothing else.

      Thank you my friend
