You First Decide


if you think
've won the battle
you're winner

if think
've defeated
you are....

better decide
before assigning
whether or not
battle destined
to you

if destined
agony or ecstasy
the factors blunt
to dictate
you
to be enchained

fight to last drop
indifferent win or defeat
it's strictly a man-game
otherwise
leave the project

to join the battle
don't fight
as two-footed animal
to satisfy animal instinct

main difference
between man and animal
as Sartre announced:
Man can put an end
to his life
animal can't

but know not
your resolution
facing alone
strictly to you!

    No! ! ! I will ALWAYS put up the fight. I would never give up on myself. I may feel sad, but I would never give up on me.
    They can hate me. They trick me. They can do all sorts. I am sure you see. BUT, I would never give up on me. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.
