Giving Up



Sometimes, the time might be ripe to accept defeat.


To say, I’ve lost,


You got me, I have nothing left to offer.


To say, I did my best,


I’ve given it everything I’ve got,


And it just wasn’t good enough.


Sometimes, just sometimes, the time may be ripe to walk away


To lay down your weapons


and to accept your fate.


To say, “I surrender”.


Sometimes, just sometimes, it’s only in accepting the defeat,


That the ultimate victory can be achieved.


And sometimes, just sometimes,


As hard as it is, it might be okay to give up on some people,


Especially those, that seem to have given up you.
