Elvis The Teacher

Young woman great talent, doesn’t like what she encounters, suspicious mind, why do they treat us so, as if they own us, she throws her head back, not me she decides, I have the talent, bit by bit she’s worn down, her love has no match, meets a bad manager, romance turns to jealousy, he’s impossible to rely on, business deals begin to go wrong, many years later she’s confused, finally runs into a prophet, she’s drug addicted and medicated, why did it go wrong, just gaining experience, it’s time to believe again, this time in the Love of God, lose the self this time, she begins to read about him, her life suddenly takes off, she follows the Great Spirit, discovers the secret of eternity, Elvis taught us so much, amen.
