You Can

Laugh.
And revel
In the fact
That
No one
Can take
That sound away.
Cry.
Find shelter
Within the truth
Explaining
No power
Can steal
Your water’s wisdom.
Sing.
Feel the hope
Ragging down
Your throat’s
Pink rafters
And catch
The fireflies
Dangling
In its symphony.
Dance.
Savor
The motion
Sojourning
Through your veins;
Then
Romance
The energy
Quivering
In the dynamics
Of
Your changing poses.
Live.
Taste the rain and
Breathe the sunlight
Through the
Chambers in
Your unconquered heart;
Glowing with a charge
Beyond the realm
Of simple positives
And negatives.
Love.
Wield a creation
That transcends the plane
Of mortality
And
Human boundaries;
That goes beyond
The shores
Of a body’s
Weak science
And finds
Sanctuary
In the impossible.
You should.
You would.
You could.
You can.

I don't critique poetry, since it's not my area of expertise, but strictly from a reader's perspective, I like this very much. Somehow you manage to tackle big concepts without going over the top into hyperbole or melodrama, which is the trap most young poets fall into. Give your muse a cee-gar and a box of assorted chocolates.
