Don’t discourage me!

If you cannot do a thing;
And know I can do it,
Don’t discourage me;
Don’t tell me it’s not worth the while;
When you know it’s worth the while;
Just because you want to discourage me;
And make me be like you.
I tell you
Leave me alone;
To do what I want to do;
To do what I can do.

  2. Thank you for your good poem,
    I don’t understand, why it is the naysayers always stand off to one side, with negative things to say to the person doing good. Better maybe if they
    had stayed home where the negative vibes grew up right along with them.
