C is for “Can’t do it!”
“No such thing!” I teach
So here’s an online poem
to practice what I preach.
O is for “Of course I can!”
This attitude has grown with age –
Just write the thing, hit enter
there’s no way to edit a blank page!
N is for no worries about
the knockbacks from the past –
Your voice is ready to be heard
So go on, give it a blast!
F is for feeling unworthy,
a heavy old feeling to shift
but in spite of disbelievers
I’m giving my wings a lift!
I is for indignant –
that’s the boo-ers in my skull.
Here they are saying ‘You can’t’ again –
Oh the cruel tricks they pull!
D is for direction –
I know where I want to go
And now I feel a great purpose
When I write, I can go with the flow
E is for the energy
I give to the people I meet
I’m saving some for me now too
I need it like bix needs a weet!
N is for No More Hiding
It’s time my words came out
A ship’s never made to stay in the port
All voices are voices with clout!
C is for ‘I Can and Will do this!’
I’ll believe in myself on this ride
No more doubts and no more tears
It’s time to be on my own side!
E is for Eh! You’re still reading!
And for that I am happy to see
Happy Poetry Day to one and all
Look for poem #2 from me!
