THE IMPOSSIBLE

It's unexplainable yet undeniable 
as incredible as that may seem
Society says it's debatable, unfavorable 
but the impossible is inspirational to me

You can be unshakable no fear of breakable
you're completely capable of anything
It's indescribable to be anti-gravitational
not held down by fallible thoughts of man.

It's not irrational in fact it's quite practical
acceptably exceptional to be adaptable
So go be sensational a professional radical
Escape the natural and taste the magical

You call me laughable my thoughts fallible
cause this world's not bashful in its disdain
But I've grown fanatical now I'm unflappable
to touch the maximal and taste the valuable 
I see the beautiful in everything!

    The philosophy expressed in your poem is optimistic. Use of in-line rhymes to match the end rhymes is nice also. In the 4th stanza, 2nd line, I think you may have meant "disdains" not "destain" unless that's a word I've not heard of. Best to you in your writing endeavors. C.L.

    Hi Dave. I'm new to PoetrySoup and was wandering around the site when I came across your inspirational poem. I love the rhythm and rhyme -- it is flawless. And your line, "the impossible is inspirational to me" I think says so much. Drop by some time. I would so like to hear your thoughts on my poetry. Though be forewarned my poetry is darker and more pessimistic than yours. Still I feel there is room in this world for different visions:) I look forward to hearing from you. Peace....Sam
