    Think-Be-Do
    A Poem for the Ageless

    After all the learning, struggling and growing
    It comes down to this:
    What we think we can be we can do.
    If we think we’re worthless
    We’ll be worth less
    And what we do will have less worth.
    If we think we’re of worth
    We’ll be worthy
    And what we do will be worthwhile.
    If we think we’re meaningless
    We’ll be less meaning
    And what we do will mean less.
    If we think we have meaning
    We’ll be more meaningful
    And what we do will mean more.
    If we think we’re powerless
    We’ll be less power full
    And what we do will have less power.
    If we think we’re powerful
    We’ll be more power full
    And what we do will have full power.
    If we think we have lost
    We will be losers
    And what we do will be lost.
    If we think we can win
    We will be winners
    And what we do is already won.
    So after all is said and all is done
    After all we’ve learned, struggled and grown
    It comes down to these three simple words:
    What we THINK we can BE we can DO.

    Yes Brother Yes
    Preach to the mind
    We have to think in a positive
    To over come the negative
    Its all a state of mind
    Loving this Brother Oldsoul

    What we Think we can Be, we can Do

    If we think we can be stopped, we'll no doubt be stopped in any effort we put forth...but...
    If we think we can't be stopped...
    we become, the mighty Un-Stoppable...
    and that's when we move, with unstoppable knowledge!

    What a wonderful dedication to Destee, thanks for sharing with us all...Awesome piece
