I Am Telling You "you can"

by CJ Maleney   Jun 3, 2017


"I can't do this"
This is a thing I so often hear.
Who said you cannot do it such things
Who said be contoured by fear?

You simply have to take a breath,
To summon your strength and will.
This thing I know that you can do
For I've given you those skills.

This is the final hurdle and step,
You are no longer a cub.
This final leap of faith to take,
Then welcome to the club.

Never think and never be told that you can't do something.

!You can!

You just need to want it bad enough !

    I like this, I really like this and I can visualize you saying this to
    a little cub/child/person who has backed down in fear. The voice in
    this poem is filled with strength that will surly give any one the motivation
    or that little push to do it!

      I coach rowing, canoeing and kayaking. Regardless of how good of a paddler they are I can't award them their qualifications unless they do a capsize drill. For some it's easy for others it's not so. Simple fact is regards of how good you are, eventually your gonna end up swimming.

      This one kid took so long to pluck up she courage. But she did it! She actually cried afterwards.

      At times like that you just wanna give em a hug but you can't for obvious reasons.

      But there is a bit of you that is so chuffed and proud because they did it. And yes it does make you part of a club of nutters.
