When I Gave Up! ! - Poem by Becky Ginn

When I gave up on life,
Wanted it all to be over,
It seemed so easy to do.
The pain felt better, it made me feel strong,
But as it went on, I was o so wrong.
The pain became worse,
It just wouldnt stop.
I started to cry
'God what have I done? '
I prayed for you and then you came.
Now you're screaming in my face.
'You stupid girl! What have you done? '
You're shaking me so hard.
I want to tell you how sorry I am.
Sorry I wasn't stronger.
You wrap up my wounds, calm down,
Hold and cradle me close, beg me not to go.
I know now that I was a coward,
And I'll stay here for you, for me,
I won't let them win!
I reach up and touch your crying face,
'Don't cry, Daddy, I'm not going anywhere'.
