Giving In - Poem by Hanna Cox

You put the blame on me

but can’t you see,

in this world full of lies

you think I’m so shy,

but I have a lot to say

about what goes

on today.


You say I’m wrong,

but I know I’m right,

now I know,

that I can’t win

this fight.


Just believe me,

just this once

can’t you see?

your judgement

has no effect

on me,

you try and hurt me

even though I plea.



I’m a flame,

that can’t be

put out,

even when you

scream and shout.


Try and pull

me down,

and surely

you will see,

that your words

have no effect on me,

I’m the only

one who gets

no credit,

why don’t you

get it?


I try so hard to

do it right,

I have these
feelings, deep

within, always

knowing that I

can’t win,

but if I try too hard,

I’ll always end up

giving in.
