The following video has audio - listen to Forrow:
I am an only child.
I am original.
I am proud of being creatively odd.
While I may have been dancing for a while alone,
still I had over the top adventures.
O one day got me out of my turtle shell.
O saved me through art from boring days of hell.
O taught me to be a magnet for standing out.
O showed me to trust my gut and have no doubt.
O is part of my roar.
O means I am an open book and for others hold open a door.
O is my true second name.
O got me through life — a most nefarious game.
For 27 years, it was a tornado of choices I overcame.
I made mistakes and never passed a blame.
I worked full time while I finished college not for fame,
but to carry on my burning dreams and honor my family name.
O is also my blood type.
O is another way I share — I am human too and care.
O is what stops me from playing silly truth or dare.
O is who I am each day and everywhere.
You may call me, O.
Now, I must help someone else
