I know you want to give up,
Give up on yourself.
Retreat back into your mind and
Busy yourself with work.
Your mind is strong, but it isn’t all.
Your heart is fragile, but feels so much.
Your body is weak, but capable of more.
Your soul is tortured, but can be calmed.
So don’t you dare give up on yourself.
Do you hear me? This is your mind speaking.
Don’t retreat back to using only me,
Ignoring the rest because it’s easier.
Please, don’t give up on us.
Don’t let life just happen to you.
