Giving Up


It's easy to say

I'm sure we say it every day

"I give up"

Yeah we think it but we don't do it


It's easiest to say when you're falling apart

When it feels like nothing is working

When the hope is fading quicker and quicker

Everything's your fault and you don't know what you did


Giving up is harder to do than say

So we try again and again every day

    (yep, Voltaire said it best
    if you don't want to be bombarded
    with that idealised ease of suicide
    in each visit of ennui, of our lives
    we must stay busy, find something
    or a few things
    that will bridge our survival path
    from our constant lows
    to that ephemeral high, we're gifted
    once in a while)
    thanks for sharing, dear poet
    totally agree
