I Believe I Can

Vital excerpts from R. Kelly's I Believe I Can Fly:

I was on the verge of breaking down
Sometimes silence can seem so loud
There are miracles in life I must achieve
But first I know it starts inside of me
If I can see it
then I can do it
If I just believe it
there's nothing to it
I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can soar
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly

I wake, live and sleep to a poster in my bedroom with this simple line:
"A great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do."

I succumb not to defeat, simply because I'm reminded daily that a great pleasure in life is to do what others or myself say can't be done.
