I Can

“I Can”

–Amy Engle


National Poetry Writing Month 2018 Poem #16


I can be tired and burnt out.

I can feel like there’s no hope.

I can give up on my positivity.

I can let my mind atrophy.

I can try to be like everyone else.




I can push past my exhaustion.

I can remember there’s good in the world.

I can choose to spread joy.

I can continue challenging myself.

I can stand out and be unique.
