anything

Listen to the mustn’ts, child.
Listen to the don’ts.
Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts.
Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me…
Anything can happen, child.
Anything can be.

Shel Silverstein

 
anything can be.
i knew this in my soul,
on a good day i still do.
we are limited by our own thoughts,
beliefs which lead us astray;
make us doubt, and disbelieve.

i have big dreams.
peace and happiness,
compassion and acceptance,
wonder and inspiration.
if only i believe
anything can be.
