Find your forte
hone and give it,
best shot,
uplift the world.

Find your forte
tone and live it,
zest slot,
uplift the world.

Find your forte
and tell
the world your story,
without gory.

Find your forte
the world in her drags,
awaits no longer your brags,
wow the world with your wags,
no longer with your lags.

Find your forte
the world in her fags,
awaits no longer your rags,
dow the world with your tags,
no longer with your gags.

Find your forte
the world in her sags,
awaits no longer your pangs,
row the world with your dags,
no longer with your nags.

Find your forte
no longer wander,
aimlessly like drone,
without prone.
