Give up

Give up

A Poem by poetdweller


Look what I’ve done

Look at me now


Shattered dreams

Corrupted reality

Broken life

To tired to continue


Falling into pain


What did I do?

Why do I feel this way?


Burning from their eyes

Piercing stares

Cruel sick laughs





What can I do now?

I’m stuck



They laugh


They push and laugh harder

I fall, and get back up

They push again

I fall, even more bruised than before.


What Can I do now?

Give up

Mmmm. it did not end with a question mark so it seems they have decided their fate in the face of adversity. Unfortunate feelings we can all relate to at one point or another - I know that I can certainly empathize but I try not to give up anyway. Thank you. Well penned, thoughful work.

Laugh back! Don't give up... You are never alone dear poet. Such honest words shedding vulnerability, yet beneath I see a spark of strength. let that spark rage into a fire! Love this but sorrow fills my heart. My shoulders are here is ever there is a need. i don't want anyone to give up.

I like it the harder you try sometimes that's what people laugh at sometimes it's like get a life and make fun of yourself. People are mean, people are nice, and people are whatever! I like this good job!

Very simple, very impactive, the single words almost punch you in the stomach with the impact they hold to the poem itself

Excellent use of singular words for impact. I thoroughly enjoyed the strength of emotion you showed here. I think we all feel like this from time to time. Fortunately the "I give up" faze does not last forever!

When someone pushes you down, you get back up, they push again you get up again, giving up is what they want you to do, but you have to show them that you're strong (on the inside) and that's what counts. This was a really good poem though and I have felt this way before, it's something everyone can relate to, but in the end I realize I can't give up, that I have to keep trying.

So many people who feel like this, so sad it is. I agree, your flow is amazing, and the words are perfect.

"Shattered dreams
Corrupted reality
Broken life
To tired to continue
Falling into pain" these words strike a chord with me, and in the scheme of the poem it fits beautifully.
Nice work
