YOU CAN DO THIS By Corinne Dixon

You can do this,
my mind tells me you can do this.

You have no choice,
but to do this.

When will you ever make something out of your life?

You started it,
finish what you started,
Don’t back out.

Think about it,
think about it hard and long.
Don’t be weak.
Be strong.

Don’t think negative,
Think positive.

In the end
you’ll be the one who’s sure to win.
So keep on moving
Don’t stop

You have a destination to be reached.
You have no choice

You can do this.
