THEY SAID IT COULDN’T BE DONE


A colleague of mine shared a poem today in the office mail.. A good one.. 

 

THEY SAID IT COULDN’T BE DONE
by
Benny Hill

They said that it could not be done, 
He said, “Just let me try.”
They said, “Other men have tried and failed,” 
He answered, “But not I.”
They said, “It is impossible,” 
He said, “There’s no such word.”
He closed his mind, he closed his heart… 
To everything he heard.

He said, “Within the heart of man,
There is a tiny seed.
It grows until it blossoms, 
It’s called the will to succeed.
Its roots are strength, its stem is hope,
Its petals inspiration,
Its thorns protect its strong green leaves,
With grim determination.

“Its stamens are its skills
Which help to shape each plan,
For there’s nothing in the universe 
Beyond the scope of man.”
They thought that it could not be done, 
Some even said they knew it,
But he faced up to what could not be done… 
And he couldn’t bloody do it!
