For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son so whoever believes in hill will not die but have eternal life.

Dreams are what make us who we are, a life without dreams is like a life without air.


There once was a man from Egypt
Who always read from a script.
He should be off-book
He got several strange looks
Because he never ad-libbed.

The man’s name happened to be Hector
He wanted to be a director
He skipped a lot of school
Never followed the rules
And he was a playbill collector

I wrote this piece because I love to perform and I just thought..."This is my life. You can right a poem about it. Just try it can't be that hard." I did. Hope you like it.

Thanks! A playbill collector is someone who hands out playbills at a theater and cleans up all the ones off the ground at the end.

Limericks are hard to write, but this is so clever! I like it. One quick question: What's a playbil collector? Brilliant! :)
