Invisible Weights

Invisible weights,
which are dragging me down,
are making me life so tough.
Doing things others find easy
can be so hard for me.
One side says I should be able to
but when I try to do these things,
monolithic stones slow me down
making it very discouraging.

Now when I say it's very discouraging
I don't mean I cannot.
I've learned in life that by saying
"I cannot" to anything
is more crippling than anything
that can ever happen to me.

So I try to use those weights
to my advantage to make me a better person
and to overcome my disabilities
and hopefully someday conquer them.

So instead of saying the easy thing
"I can't"
instead I dig my heals in and say
I can !
