Treasure Island

Desmond Winbush

(7/31/1966 / Wichata, Kansas)


Because of the choice i made i have to live this life
because i must live this life i have to be independent
because i must be independent i have to be creative
because i must be creative i have to make the right choices
because of the choice i made

Because of the choice i made i have to be consistent
because i have to be consistent i must be prepared
because i have to be prepared i must be accountable
because i have to be accountable i must be responsible
because i have to be responsible i must make the right choices
because of the choice i made
so, make the right choice...
