Poetry: "Can't"

This was just gonna be "What's wrong with living with your head in the clouds as long as your feet are planted on the ground?" on my FB status, but then I slipped and fell on my keyboard.


"CAN'T"


Pray tell, who says you can’t
Keep your feet on the ground
If you live with your head in the clouds?

Pray tell, who says you can’t
Grow your roots, fortified
If you sprout wings to take to the skies?

Tell them cowards who say “can’t”
Why choose one over the other
When you can choose to have it all rather?

If only you were just a little braver.

  1. I especially adore this verse:

    Pray tell, who says you can’t
    Grow your roots, fortified
    If you sprout wings to take to the skies?

    1. Makes sense, considering that's the verse I struggled the most with XD Agonising over words pays off ♥ lol
      Thanks, you~
