11) I Give Up

I give up on the truth;

It only hurts the people around you.

I give up on the lies;

They are the reason the truth hurts.

I give up on the dreams;

They don't come true,

And it hurts when they're crushed.

I give up on the wishes and fantasies;

They allowed me to dream too much.

I give up on the love;

I know I don't deserve it,

I don't understand what love is,

No one does.

I give up on the words;

I don't know how to us them,

No one does.

I give up on my voice;

No one listens to it.

I give up on the writing;

People say I don't do it right.

I give up on the music;

I don't know how to sing,

How to write songs,

Or how to dance.

I give up on half of my family;

Only because they left me.

I give up on friends;

They don't understand me.

I give up on my self;

I fail at everything I do.

I give up on everything and everyone that ever gave up on me first.


Even though I gave up;

But you shouldn't!

Don't follow me..

I ran into walls and gave up..

Be true to yourself and to your heart,

Because then you'll never be lead a stray.
