Yes You Can Achieve

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

You Can Make It

You Can Make It

Yes You Can!

You can do it. Yes you can

You can achieve it, take a positive stand

You can become whatever you want to be, there is no stopping you

You have potential and greatness to do what you want to do

Don’t let hurdles and speed bumps stop your race

Apply maneuverer tactics and reach that place

Brush off that little red man sitting on your shoulder with negative whispers

Put your goals in overdrive and become that trail blazer

Yes, it may not be an easy run but you have what it takes to make it

Look up, reach for the stars, grab hold and take it.

Jump, dodge, role if you must

But just don’t give up and lay down in the dust

The only time you are ever beaten is when you stop trying

But once you keep getting up, soon the ground will scorn you and will begin flying.

This is a great message to achieve your goals and dreams. Taking those chances on doing something better or greater is so worthwhile.

Clive, this is absolutely spot-on! ' Yes you can,' how many times did I yell that when Obama was running for our first black President? I loved this positive message. Wonderful!
