This poem is one based on life long decisions. The stanza say about how things are, and that some things people might not be able to do. If you think you can do it, you can do it. Otherwise, you cannot. It seems this poem had some life history to it, which makes it more special.
In terms of society, you can only do things if you put your mind to it, and that was the case here. Every moment you need to succeed is with will and belief. It is very potent in the abilities it has to offer.
I love this poem as it really brings forth a lot of different life stories. I feel like this is the same with NCEA, where if you can pass, you can pass. It seems like an excellent poem to put to the state of mind.
