The Brick Wall

What do we do when we are faced with a brick wall?
That tells us we can’t do it.
It’s too hard.
It cannot be done.
We can succumb to this wall.
We can let it get the better of us.
OR we can say:
We will not let this brick wall stop us.
We are not going to let this get in our way.
Because the road may be hard.
The brick wall may be sturdy and strong.
But we are stronger.
This wall may seem unbeatable.
But we must look at what’s on the other side.
We can defeat this brick wall.
Because we are stronger.
It is possible.
There is a way.
We will break through this wall.
Because it can be overcome.
Because we are stronger.
This wall isn’t here to stop us.
Rather, it is here to show us how strong we are, how much we can fight to get to the other side.
It will show us how we can never say never.
How we CAN.
Because we are stronger.
Because we have the power.
To get to the other side; with courage, with dignity.
Because we can.
