the ATHENA CREED


Today I can take my place in the world, because
Through my music I can make someone happy
Through my music I can talk to anyone
Through my music I can climb mountains
Through my music I can share how I feel
Through my music I can control myself
Through my music I can walk in your shoes
Through my music I can learn, I can listen,
I can be a friend.

ATHENA...
