Who Says I Can't?

I used this poem as an exercise in my poetry corner.  Since the first four lines are free verse, you can make up your own poem then add the last four lines.

 

I can’t whistle

I can’t snap my fingers

I can’t make the French nasal sound

I can’t speak fast in Spanish

I can’t walk

But I can talk

There are 10,000 things I can do

But best of all, I can love you true!
