But She Did

They said, “I can rhyme like that”

They never did rhyme

But she did

 

They said, “I can paint like that”

They never did paint

But she did

 

They said “I can sing like that”

They never did sing

But she did

 

They said, “I can write like that”

They never did write

But she did

 

They said, “I can talk like that”

They never did talk

But she did

 

They said, “I can dance like that”

They never did dance

But she did

 

They stand on the wall

Hands on their hips

Saying they can do these things

To which my response would be:

“What’s stopping you?”

 

Show up

Speak up

Stand up
