Poems and Poetry

Cannot | A Poem by JD DeHart

upon entering
I feel my face flushing

this new face
taking on a challenge
wresting a myth

this myth was born
the first time someone
stopped and quit
the first time someone
hung their head,
meditating: I am not
good enough

so, the choice is
wading in cannot
or holding on to can
