Gave Up

I gave up on everyone and myself
Put everything I care about up on a shelf
Only to die several times
And then keep coming back with more rhymes

I gave up because I know something I should not
Endured what was never meant to be but a shot
At something better and good
Always for the poor as it should

But the human powers that be
Want it to never be
Because it breaks the status quo
I gave up on my own life with nothing to show

So for whatever purpose this serves
It ends up racking my nerves
For it’s very own plight
Is completely out of my sight
