Never Surrender

I'll never surrender, forever fighting til the end. Life often buries my face in the dirt, yet I stand to my feet and try again.

At times the world is cold and harsh, things never seem to go the right way.
I must march out of the darkness and never again let myself fall astray.

I'm far from perfect, so many bad choices I tend to repeat.
But continue with my head held high, for I will never accept defeat.

Still the past memories and negativity slice through me, I lie bleeding with my fragile heart tossed upon the ground.
Somehow I must remain positive, keep in my mind the peace and faith I have found.

There has been far too many days lost by dwelling on the past.
Can't go back and change it, so I must make the most of life while it lasts.

Will not lay in sorrow, no more desolation and despair.
My daughters by my side, like two angels giving me the strength to withstand the beating, take it all, grin and bear.

I can not surrender, I must be here for my kids everyday and give them everything that I possibly can.
To have love, trust, guidance, and a better childhood than myself is the ultimate plan.

With these goals set that I must accomplish, never will I give up, I will always try.
I'll push through the agonizing pain to stand, never will I lay down and die.

    Beautiful write. Life is struggle but you have love's strength by your side. Stand by that love. Love your optimism.

  • Leslie Philibert (8/29/2012 4:14:00 AM)

    I think this is a good poem, that has rightly become good reviews. Just one small point, , the couplet structure
    is not always constant (4,6 and 7 stanzas) which breaks up the tempo, but all in all very good work!

  • Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi (8/29/2012 3:21:00 AM)

    when we surrender our life to sacrifice for the welfare of the family, in particular for the children, we do not have to surrender for any other evils. JC, though sad and in certain lines too much of unnecessary visuals, still inspirational to thousands of hearts who need to be inspired.

  • Tony Walton (8/29/2012 1:40:00 AM)

    Actually, Nilangshu, 'to strive, to seek...' etc. is St Ignatius Loyala, not Homer.

  • Neela Nath (8/12/2012 10:59:00 AM)

    wow! It sounds like Ulysses --to strive, to seek, to find and not to yield.A poem on strong optimism.Loved it.
