I feel like giving up…

Sometimes giving up seems the noblest

and logical of all choices

given the grimmer alternatives.

It seems and tastes way much better

than going through life in a lethargic haze

forcing myself to do things I no longer care for,

holding on to the tail-end of a shadow of a dream.

Sometimes, all seems bleak

and I feel like nothing is worth holding on to. 

 

David

“Life can tear away what’s vital to a man, hook it from him, one scrap at a time, leaving him empty-handed and beggared by the years.”–Mark Lawrence: Emperor Of Thorns
