"Nothing is impossible. The word itself says 'I'm Possible'"

Follow directions
do this and that,
and I do it
but why?
Because I said so
stop jabbering
quit doodling
stop it
why can’t you just
be like
everyone else
why can’t I?
Because I said so.
stop jabbering.

I like this poem, though I would either add "quit doodling" or remove the last line to preserve the flow.
