Listen to the musn'ts, child, listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me...Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.

Last night when the moon was full
Last night when the wolf sang
Last night when the wind whispered
they whispered to me

When the wolf sang
When the stars twinkled
When the wind whispered
They whispered to me

When the wind whispered
They said a thing or two
about choosing the pathway
choosing the pathway
to success

When the wind whispered
they said a thing or two
about knowing the difference
knowing the difference
between right and wrong

Last night when the moon was full
Last night when the wolf sang
Last night when the wind whispered
they whispered to me

When the wolf sang
When the stars twinkled
When the wind whispered
They whispered to me

I wrote this when my mother told me I had no chance of becoming a writer. I called my uncle and he inspired me to write.
