I quit because life hurts, people hurt and living hurts.
I have no strength to move, develop and fight through
everyday challenges. I can’t see clear, the road ahead
there’s no guide to capture my stare. It’s easy for you,
you are brave, muscle don’t matter only the strength in your cave.
Like a giant, you knock down the intimidating forces.
You squeeze the meanness out of life courses.
You don’t get backed into a wall, you run right into the fog.
I don’t have it in me; I hurt all over, it stings, burns, and gives
me the cold shoulder. I’ve tried to hold on, being positive, optimistic
and playing happy; but depression has gotten the best of me.
I clap, I cheer “go, go, go;” yet don't.
Like a giant, you knock down intimidating forces. Looking life’s threat, square in the eyes, you scream at it, you warn it, and you haunt it. Life is so scared of you; it tucks its tail, curls up in a ball, and runs down the hall. Life doesn’t bully you. Please help me to get through too!
