Yes You Can!

We were told: "It is impossible."
But we did enter.
We approached the gate.
Everywhere they heard the word "impossible."
We wanted; to see signs .
We were told: "It is impossible."
We wanted to bring light
We were told: "It is impossible."
"The gray guards, who have seen,
who knew! You make mistakes!
The Master allowed us to learn and see .
Perhaps, he wants us to
give knowledge and vision.
A messenger stands behind the gate.
He brought us something.
Allow us to see him, guards! "
"It is impossible," they told us.
and shut the gate.
But still a lot of gates
we passed. We moved forward.
And "possible" was remained among us.
The guard at the gate protected us.
And they implored, And threatened .
Beware: "It is impossible."
We filled everywhere "impossibility".
Everything is impossible. You can not do everything.
It is impossible for everything.
We left behind "possibility".
But on the last gate
will be inscribed "You can do".
Impossibility will be behind us.
