Follow your rainbows, follow your dreams,
And don't let your sorrows keep you downstream.
     Life isn't easy when troubles assail,
but if you don't try, you always will fail!  
Let faith be your guide, then follow your star; 
the less traveled road will take you afar. 
After the storm, bright rainbows appear, leave your teardrops behind; 
there's nothing to fear.
  Follow your rainbows; follow your dream,
For only on top will you find the cream!        
  .... by Clay Harrison
