Give Up

I tried to see this evening,
but I was blind,
I tried to think this evening,
but lost my mind,
I tried to feel this evening,
but I was numb,
I tried to speak this evening,
but I was dumb.
No matter how much I try,
However long I cry,
The tears will dry and leave their mark,
The light will fade and leave just dark.

I tried to smile this evening,
but instead I cried,
I tried to live this evening,
but I just died,
I tried to climb this evening,
but I fell down,
I tried to breathe this evening,
but instead I drowned.
No matter how much I try,
However long I cry,
The tears will dry and leave their mark,
The light will fade and leave just dark.

And when you cannot breathe, or climb,
when you cannot live, or smile,
when you cannot speak, or feel,
when you cannot think, or see...

...Give up.
