I Give Up! ! ! - Poem by Shreej k.c

I try to breathe but end up in deep sighs
I try to point out but ignore like the blind eyes
I try to unleash but get tangled in unbreakable chain
I try to endure but get stabbed with excruciating pain
I try to revive but then…I give up!

I always get one for you but you look for the other
I move to erase the distance but you ran further
I hope to explain you but you challenge my dignity
I approach to hear you but you pose your insanity
I think of rebelling but then…I give up! !

I wish to smell the fragrance but get pricked by the thorn
I wish to rejoice but get forced to mourn
I wish to taste the sweetness but get stung by the bee
I wish to enjoy the sunny beach but get drowned into the sea
I wish to soar high in the sky but then…I give up! !

I try to solve but get fed up with fruitless toil
I try to escape but get caught in endless turmoil
I try to ease, I try to cure
I try to ignore, I try to endure
I try every way and then…I give up! ! !

(Giving up makes me a free bird again...)
