Resignation - Poem by Cosi Celeste

I give up trying to change helium into hydrogen.
I give up trying to change no to yes.
I give up trying to see without my glasses.
I give up trying to run when I should walk.

I give up trying to fix what’s not broken.
I give up trying to find a three legged dog.
I give up trying to sing beyond my voice range.
I give up trying to reap what I’ve not sown.
