Yes, You Can Succeed
Figure it out for yourself, my lad;
You've all that the greatest men have had;
Two arms, two hands, two legs, two eyes,
And a brain to use if you would be wise.
With this equipment they all began.
So start from the top and say "I can".
Look them over, the wise and the great;
They take their food from a common plate.
And similar knives and forks they use,
With similar laces they tie their shoes.
The world considers them brave and smart
But you've all the had when they made their start.
You're the handicapped you must face;
You are the one who must choose your place.
You must say where you want to go,
How much you will study the truth to know;
God has equipped you for life, but He
Lets you decide what you want to be.
Courage must come from the soul within,
The man must furnish the will to win.
So figure it out for yourself, my lad;
You are born with all the the great have had.
With all your equipment they all began,
Get hold of yourself and say, "I CAN".
