some say
it's the luck of the draw
the way you Stay
come's from your maw & your paw

they give you your genes
so there is no relief
you're stuck in them same old blue jeans
but that's not my belief

who you Are
is Who you choose to Be
a bum or a Star
can you See?

true in poker
it's the cards you draw
sometimes you get a joker
sometimes the short end of the straw

but it's still up to You
to fold or to stay
what you Do
is always Your play

even in Love
you get to choose
like all of the above
sometimes you Win, sometimes you Lose

naw, it ain't your maw nor your paw
that makes you You
it ain't the luck of the draw
it's what you Do.

I think that maw and paw have a lot of influence but it is up to the individual in what they do like you wrote.
