you can’t do that

There is a certain “you can’t do that” to my life.

It’s been said in the past.

Some people believed I could only fail.

I’d like to say that I knew right away they were wrong. I could face every challenge. I was positive there was nothing but good times ahead.

I’d like to say that.

I wish that was true.

I sat in my room and considered the words of others meant to make me unsure of what I could do.

I decided I would rather try and fail than never try at all.

I got rid of the voices that predicted my failure.

I gave it everything I had.

It gave back.
