Toby is the best

Toby walks in the living room and
tries to get his sister's attention.
"Look at me!" said Toby.
"I am the best pirate in the world."
Toby proclaims.
"You are no pirate," said his sister, Betty.
"You have no sword and no ship."
Toby lowers his head and walks away.
Moments later, Toby runs back in the living room.
"Look here," Toby shouts. "I am the best pilot."
"You can't be a pilot," said Betty.
"You never flew a plane and you are afraid of heights."
Once again, Toby turns around and walks away.
Toby sprints back in the room with a shout.
"I am the best doctor in the world.":
"No way!" said Betty.
"You faint at the sight of blood."
Once more, Toby walks away disappointed.
Toby walks back in the living room.
"Look at me now," cried out Toby.
I am a superhero."
Betty shakes her head in disgust.
"OK, OK," Toby said. "You are right."
"I am not a pirate, pilot, doctor or even a superhero."
"But!" said Toby.
"I am the best in one thing."
"What is that?" asked Betty.
"I have great imagination," answered Toby.
"You are right!" Betty agreed.
You certainly have great imagination."

Never Say Can't

         I said the words, "I can't,
not once but countless more.
When you think about it,
you said those words before.
The thoughts we have,
are from what we heard.
Nothing is achieved,
when it's a negative word?
The moment I say I can't,
those words will take me down.
It never lifts you up,
or turn things around.
It may become a habit,
and even sometimes a chant.
But I should never ever say,
the two words, "I CAN'T"
