Giving up

Today I feel like giving up

… Giving up on hope

Things never seem to go my way

I find it so hard to cope.


Today I feel like giving up

… Giving up on my dream

I try so hard but still don’t succeed

I constantly want to scream.


Today I feel like giving up

… Giving up on life’s chase

There’s so many things I long for

But I can’t keep up in the race.


Today I feel like giving up

… Giving up on desire

I’ll settle for the things I already have

My soul is beginning to tire.


Today I feel like giving up

… Giving up on life

I was never warned how hard it would be

It’s causing me too much strife.


Today I felt like giving up

But then I realised how far I’d come

All this heartache has made me stronger

To give up now would be so dumb!


Today I almost decided to give up

But I pushed these thoughts from my mind

I will carry on and I will keep trying

… I will leave this negativity behind.

    Fantastic poem. I just returned from a week’s visit with my young adult daughter. There are many things she now has in her life that are incredible and I’m so proud of her. There are also a few things that didn’t sit right with me that I’ve been telling her about them for a while…but she holds strong and doesn’t change. I’ve been feeling I need to “give up” on those topics. I’m even thinking of writing a blog post about it. Thank you for inspiring me.
