Abnegation - Poem by Gavin Marshall


Like a star shooting from the sky,
Like a hurricane fading to a wind,
Like a birds wings which refuse to fly,
Like a devout christian who has sinned,
I have reached my point of end.

No more burdens for me now,
No more for me, I will take my bow,
Too much I had to take,
Too much from all you fakes,
I have reached my final revelation.

You turned against me,
You turned on one another,
If you can't comprehend with being free,
I don't know why I ever bothered,

Don't believe you were popular that was just your interpretation,
No matter how our past is structured, I have reached my abnegation.

Quick Synopsis

Okay well I've had a lot of questions about what this word means. It all depends. But in this situation it is this:
Renunciation of your own interests in favor of the interests of others
To give in to something you had trust/belief in.
