" Shall I tell you about my life
They say I'm a man of the world "

                                 Peter Green



Man of the World


My Way is the Art of no Style

Never telegraph your moves

Have complete confidence

In your own abilities

Brook no fear or anxiety

Complete your missions

With zeal and enthusiasm

Knowing full well

That you will succeed


Realise it well and true

You are the architect

Of your own life and future

Held in Providence's hands

You can never ever fail

Let me tell you this

Perspectives will change

But you will

Remain as you are


Be true to yourself alone

Cling to nothing

Of this world

All will dissipate

And dissapear

Except your very soul

Consider it now

You have the seeds

Of success in your own hands


Be gentle in everything

Use the smooth handle

To solve all situations

Indomitable spirit overcomes

Every problem and puzzle

And remember finally

He and she travels lightly

Who travel with God's Grace

I am really enjoying these your didactic desiderata writes, Peter. They put fire in the belly and steel into the backbone - as well as vision in the mind. Love the finale: "He and she travels lightly Who travel with God's Grace"... Branson's finally sold out, has he?! Bout time! :)) LOL K xx
