Ranch Poem- “If you think you can, you can”

11/16/13

If you think you can, you can

Wandering ’round these unhinged streets
with some qualms in my pocket.
When will this ink wash out?
And why are they all so sick?

I had to reassemble recently,
sometimes its all just a shambles.
Our social status ain’t too pretty.
Cracks in self worth, gaps in empathy.

And if we think we can’t, we can’t
And if we think we can, we can
And if you think you can’t, you can’t
And if you think you can, you can

All that searching and networking,
you had better make a plan
to change the fabric of your own
and make it manifest man.

Seen this old friend living on the street,
he’s out of options, an addict for hire.
I always have five dollars for him,
happy that his life hasn’t expired.

And if we think we can’t, we can’t
And if we think we can, we can
And if you think you can’t, you can’t
And if you think you can, you can

We rap about addiction like its Vietnam,
no family untouched, a draft in full effect.
We need to rethink this war
‘cus the whole system is suspect.

What price is paid for our ideals?
Capital and Tradition and Possession.
Resisting revolutions just to stay this way.
Disassociation is the sad obsession.

And if we think we can’t, we can’t
And if we think we can, we can
And if you think you can’t, you can’t
And if you think you can, you can
you can, you can, you can, you can
And if you think you can, you can
