IM(P)OSSIBLE

IM(P)OSSIBLE

Impossible:
Imp
Possible?
Wimp!
..
Failure:
Fail
Lure?
Wail!
..
Achievable:
Achieve
Able?
Receive!
..
Strive
Thrive.

STANZA 1:

Impossible:
Imp
Possible?
Wimp!

*Here, I took a journey into the meaning of Impossible:
IMP as a noun is a demon that has wings
IMP as a verb means to give wings to someone or make a demon out
of someone..

The Idea I had was that, striving in the face of challenges requires
some devilry atimes [hence an IMP] and then you can try to FLY over
them….

When you do that, all becomes possible.

But even in the face of the possibility of success through
determination, some people withdraw, those are WIMPS]

STANZA 2:

Failure:
Fail
Lure?
Wail!

*Now Failure
When challenges come, we begin to see failure…we sometime think
we will FAIL, it even LURES you in to surrender and accept the
failure.

If you allow it to drag you in, you will WAIL!

STANZA 3:

Achievable:
Achieve
Able?
Receive!

*Now Achievable..a contrast to the preceding stanza on Failure and
its lures

If you have something you seek and you really believe to ACHIEVE
it is something you are ABLE to do in the face of challenges, then
you will RECEIVE success in the end.

STANZA 4:

Strive
Thrive.

*So at the end of it all, I concluded that what you STRIVE for will
THRIVE

Its a given.
