Doing the Impossible Again

With impossibility at hand
possibility slams against that big dead end sign
and bounces back,
paused by uncertainty.
It glances over its shoulders,
glowers a bit through matted eyebrows,
and lunges back at target
with the power of a high tech drilling laser
hyped out with juiced up joules
and good ol’ American know-how.
He splatters head on into that uncrackable mirror
and loses a few more years in wasted time.
No mark on it this time either.
No matter.
Just a couple light years running start next time
is what it will take.
That’s all.

    Hmmmm….the possibility of possibilities makes the impossible possible as long as we do not ensnare ourselves in the probability of what is probable.

    Put another way: God dwells in possibles, man is deterred by probables.

    This is what I reckon.

    • How about, “With God, nothing will be impossible”. This becomes more confusing as I try to think about it more.
      Thank you for stopping by and commenting. You are an encouragement.

    Carroll, hooray for keeping on keeping on at doing the impossible. How would I ever be able to comment on your blog if many others had not “done the impossible”? Bless you dear ones!
