the world within me

Chapter 24
Give up

when i feel like giving up

and letting it all go

but deep inside my soul

it's very wrong i know


to leave it all halfway

spread across the floor

to walk out of the room

and close the heavy door


i feel like giving up

the notes are hard to play

the brush would not stay stiff

things don't go my way


i feel like letting go

of everything i own

cutting of the flow

digging out seeds sown


i never tried before

for fear of giving up

it was never failure

that barred me from filling my cup


now that i've turned on the tap

i long to carry on

but the burden seems to much

failure have i won


yet i'm not exactly failing

but i'm to take the blame

for giving up on this

and quitting the unfinished game


the destination is far

the path very long

how much time would i need

to finish up this song


to put the pieces together

to puzzle everything

what time do i have

to pen it down in ink


there's still so much to do

before it's all complete

but sometimes i want to give up

it's too much of a feat
