Dirty FOUR letter word


There's a four letter word as offensive as any

it holds back the few puts a stop to the many

you can't climb that mountain

you can't cross that sea

you can't become anything you want to be

you can't hit a century

they can't find a cure

she can't think about leaving or searching for more

because can't is a word with a habit of stopping the flow of ideas

it keeps dropping itself when we know in our hearts it's not needed

and saying don't go when we could have succeeded

But those four little letters that end with a "T"

they can change in an instant

when shortened to three

We can take off the "T"

we can do it today

we can move forward not back

we can find our own way

we can build we can run we can follow the sun

we can push we can pull

we can say I'm SOMEONE

who refuses to believe that life can't be better

with the removal of one insignificant letter.



Thanks COMMONWEALTH BANK for one of the most positive ads i have seen on TV for a while.

I couldn't agree with your sentiment more. One of the few commercials that, when I first saw it, I stopped to watch and listen to the end.
Very positive.

Thoroughly agree with you. Do you have any idea who wrote it? I'm looking forward to reading the rest of your blog.
