Poem Commentary

Learning to say you can when you can't is easier said.

I Can't

I can't I just can't
How many times we've used  those words
It doesn't fit right
 I can't make it work
Try again you can do it
I can't I can't I can't
Can't never did anything
But you can

You can loose yourself in a world
Of denial self pity
Simply put can't to the test
Go to battle try again
Never say never to can't

You can't if you don't try
Shape that square peg
Make a round pig fit
Try again you can

Solve that problem
Think positive instead
Never say can't until you try
Never say can't you can

Generally true - and a good attititude to instill in children,, but - Can you fly? Can you jump over a mountain? Can you play the piano with your ears?

You can fly over a mountain (in a Plane) You can climb a mountain (and jump with a rope) taking steps to safly find the other side.It might take a while but mountain climbers have done it. You can make a tune on the piano with your ears but it may not sound good.. People eat with their feet who have no arms. If there is a will ,you might just find a way. If not you have tried Use of common sence works. LOL Please dont do anything trastic. I get your point. Reality fits in there with common sence.

Thank you Marie that is true. In many people in general deal with it everyday.

Poetry is what gets lost in translation.
