Ini puisi yang akan selalu saya ingat, benar-benar memberikan motivasi dalam diri saya. Setelah saya cari-cari di internet, ternyata judul aslinya adalah It couldn't be done, tapi yang saya terima diawal puisi ini berjudul IT CAN BE DONE. Jadi saya akan tetap menganggap judul puisi ini adalah IT CAN BE DONE.
IT CAN BE DONE
Somebody said that it couldn't be done
But he with a chuckle replied
That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one
Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn't be done, and he did it.
There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done
There are thousands to prophesy failure
There are thousands to point out to you, one by one
The dangers that wait to assail you.
But just buckle in with a bit of a grin
Just take off your coat and go to it
Just start to sing as you tackle the thing
That "cannot be done," and you'll do it.
