Surrender

with one comment

It’s the day you wake up and admit

it’s not working.

 

Your feet hit the floor in the same place as always,

but today you feel the thud —

the mechanical grinding as everything starts to move.

 

You’re walking round a racetrack,

promising yourself you’ll win.

But you’ve been at this far too long to believe your own voice.

 

It’s the day you ask the question — why it even matters.

The competition that is.

Everything you believed was important.

 

You can see them all behind you —

the years you spent looking for perfection.

They mock your broken reflection and the

uncertainty of future.

 

It’s the day you finally quit — just stop trying so hard.

Stop caring. Or maybe it’s when you really start.

 

Stepping of the track, you put your hands up

and surrender.
