Date Of Birth

Date of Birth

Does my Date of Birth tell you what I'm worth?
To every season turn, turn, turn
Does it make any difference what day I was born?
For me this question burns and burns
For lack of an extra five seconds in my mother's womb
Instead of a crabby Cancer, a proud Leo I might have become
But surely everyone can see – I'd still be the same ME

The twelve Houses of astrological Signs
May be the guide some follow, but that road can never be mine
In the Chinese calendar, mine is the Year of the Tiger
And further, the Month of the Panther
With a cat's insatiable need to roam
I've spent my life on the move, calling no place Home
Nothing and nobody to tie me, I'm restless – and I'm free
