[ CC ] I Know You Can

 
It's not that you are living a lie      
     
You've been lying to yourself      
for decades, never fully      
tuned into the truth    
of who you were    
     
through no one's influence    
on the dial but your own    
     
The real struggle began when    
I can became I can't      
because ...
     
     
and for whatever the reasons    
continued, train of thought    
gained momentum in direction    
counter-clockwise to desire    
     
travelling far off course    
     
yet going nowhere    
except in frustrating    
roundabouts    
     
Believing you are capable    
is one thing;   
     
practicing    
I can      
is a whole 'nother story    
     
Here is the next part of yours    
---you are the author    
     
Same as the poetry you pen    
write it with care    
---revise, revise, revise    
knowing you can    
     
And If you must insist upon otherwise      
know I'll be waiting at the station    
for your arrival    
     
Until then ...    
     
see you there
