I can’t, as the forbidden words echos from my lips,
I am reminded of a promise I made to myself as a little kid,
who was a nobody. an outsider to the world every chance he got he was looking in,
I told myself I can’t is not a real word, it blanket of air that don’t exist,
I can’t what is that? Who says that? What doesn’t that even mean?
People rely on me to make the world spin in their eyes
Crying words of pains and favors, while I can’t even shed tears from my own eyes when I cry,
I can’t be the only one who tries his hardest, to not leave burdens on upon anyone else but myself,
I don’t even ask for favors, For when I do people store them away leaving them to dry on shelves,
So if I can do for me, why can’t you do for you,
Damn I use the word can’t again, I am going to rephrase it to say, what can you do for you?
I challenge myself everyday to create possibilities and a direct line of escape,
For all my unknowns I try to prepare myself at all times not to choke or to faint,
I can’t be the only one who don’t want to echo those words,
I can’t, I can’t, I can’t,
I always looks forward to say what I can do,
For if I can do for me and you can’t do for you,
What are you even on this earth to do?
