A free verse poem of not quitting.

When You Want to Give Up

You run at full speed to the finish line,
But you keep falling on the ground,
Injuring your knee and pride.

Life continuously pushes obstacles in your way,
Leading to a feeling of throwing in the towel,
Sick of all the hurdles on the road.

Sitting with dark thoughts creeping up,
Scared of the negative outcome,
Which is the spark for getting up.

Once realizing that survival is the only option,
You grab a firm hold of your cloth,
And run with determination to reach the end.

I think we have reached that point where survival is our only option and it's time to run but I hope our goals are the right ones and our survival includes more than just us, but our planet and humanity as well. Well written.

Maybe to slow down
to strolling pace
see the floweres
fill ones senses
inhale their cent
their beauty
listen to the songs of birds
take in nature
listen - be listen to
