When life does not go your way.
When your world falls apart.
When your outlook is grey.

Yes, you can do this.

When trouble lurks at your door.
When there’s no way forward.
When the outcome looks poor.

You, you can do this.

When your self-belief is low.
When there’s no solution.
When there’s nowhere to go.

Yes, you can do this.

When you have been rejected.
When you feel all alone.
When you feel neglected.

Yes, you can do this.

When you feel the pain of loss.
When your dreams are shattered.
When you don’t give a toss.

Yes, you can do this.

When you feel completely lost.
When you don’t know which way.
When the warmth turns to frost.

Yes, you can do this.

For all that you are inside.
For all that lies ahead.
Good days will calm the tide.

Yes, you can do this.

In November 2019, I was invited to recite this poem as part of my broadcast for The Parkinson’s Road Podcast; hosted by Tanya Lesstrange of British Columbia, Canada. If you would like to hear my recital, please select the link below:
