    DID is a word of achievement
    WON'T is a word of retreat
    MIGHT is a word of bereavement
    CAN'T is a word of defeat
    OUGHT is a word of duty
    TRY is a word of each hour
    WILL is a word of beauty
    CAN is a word of power.

    I am somebody. If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it, I know I can achieve it. -Jesse Jackson

    CAN you keep on keeping the power? ...
    WILL you focus that power for the good?
    Try and take my power devil
    OUGHT to do what I must
    CAN'T never say I can't...no, can't do it
    MIGHT I be, all that I am
    WON'T let the sun catch me crying

    You brought them down to us, ...I'm bringing them back up to ya.
    thanks for sharing, I liked the flow of this

    re: Look

    This is a powerful poem of believing and achieving goals and dreams while we can.
