- I Wish I Could: : Humour, Inspiration - Poem by Alessandra Liverani

I wish I could, but I can't
I wish I would, but I won't
I can't do it, I don't believe
That is something I could never achieve

I couldn't do that, no way
Never, ever, the answer is nay
I will fail, I just know
Never succeed, it is just so

My mind does not compute success
It has no room for the word 'yes'
'No' has moved into every room
There are no vacancies in Hotel Doom

But wait a minute, maybe I can
Maybe, just maybe I can conjure up a plan
The failure program has just been superseded
It's obsolete, outmoded, can be completely deleted

(Sydney, Australia - 2005)
