My motivation has been lost in the years spread too thin for too long. High expectations create even bigger lows when you can’t reach the top, take those extra steps into that unknown. Depths of self-pity are only darkened because I have given up. There’s a light I can’t see a hope I don’t feel, I have given up

There was a time when nothing scared me, when persistence and dedication powered my being, now they’re simply words spit from my mouth onto that face that stares back through that mirror. My revival will only come when I bury my pride and see the reality of failure

I have not given up
I have not given up
I have not given up
I will bury my pride
