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.

  1. To surrender in front of our negative thoughts would be a failure. And I don’t want to give up yet. I will fight till the end and that will give me happiness. Great poem πŸ‘Œ

      Good on you. It’s easier to give up than keep fighting but in the long run, the fighting will pay off… X

    Nice ending, though the thoughts are quite natural to come in mind, we should never give up our dreams. optimistic

  8. 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.
