Don't Give Up

Maybe it’s time.
I give it a second chance,
after all it’s the 498th time
I’ve said that
so I have a chance!

I didn’t succeed at what I loved
because I gave up.
But I do remember the time I didn’t
give up, and that helps
to have that time,
locked in.
It gets
because we cover it with shit
and because we’re so focused
on our failures
and our misery.

And so that’s what matters.
The time you didn’t give up,
not the time you did.
By focusing on the times you gave up
you keep yourself stuck
to that fantasy
it become reality
you don’t move
because you
can’t move

you don’t want to move.

But there was a time you didn’t give up.
And you can find it.
And you can use it.

Don’t give up.
