Never say never because you think I can’t,
Doesn’t mean I’ll never;
Or never will again.
Never say never, you’ll eat your words,
For I cannot except limitations,
Especially when they’re unsure.
Perhaps, I am usual, and change is difficult;
But every now and then I’ll throw a curve ball,
Just for my own glee;
Only to surprise you because what’s life without —
I may have been easier in the past,
But I have strength you cannot conceive;
I have potential and possibility.
It’s not pride that’s hurt or my self unwilling to accept,
But your words, so sure —
Are a challenge, suppositions I won’t except.
Because in your life, you were willing to give in —
Doesn’t mean I will too.
And I will never stop pushing,
Because although I’m some of you,
A lot of me is me; and ‘never’ is a word,
Not in my vocabulary.
For life is full of ‘ifs and maybes,’
Times we must stop overthinking,
Not believing in never is always a choice.
So, fight because to stop would be —
To relinquish your will to live.
And never say never,
Your words will come back to haunt.
No one knows what’s tomorrow,
Or what fictitious assumptions turn into reality.
Hope is a beacon, it’s glow destroys —
The word ‘never’ and alights,
Minds open and diverse; all the —
Scintillating and infinite tomorrows that could,
And someday will be.
Never say never, never limit someone;
Don’t confine yourself.
Tomorrow is a misty veil,
The glass a sheen obsidian.
But hope and possibility —
They’re twinned together;
And they never say never,
The word is foreign to them,
So, should the word be buried,
Despair sunk in ocean trenches deep;
Lost in the depths of the secret sea.
