I Think I Can, I Know I Can - Poem by Adam Smitherman

When I was a little kid I thought I could run.
But then I fell down and that wasn't fun.
As I started to grow up I tried new things.
Like riding a bike and taking whatever life brings.
During those Elementary years I thought I was cool.
But really I was just a fool.
I'd also wish for another try.
But all along all i needed was a friend to get by.
As middle school came around i started noticing girls a lot more.
But it didn't matter cause they woudl reject and that would hurt me to the core.
A lot of problems were in line for me then.
Shop Lifting and it wasn't even the beginning of it.
I was already stealing money from my parents since I was ten.
High School wasn't any different.
Only the people you used to know turned into the direct oppisite and whatever was said to someone else was usually truly meant.
All I my life I was telling my self I think I can, I think I can.
But all along I should've been saying I know I can, I know I can.
