Was that it?

Was that all you had?

Have you given up?

I thought better of you.

I thought you could make something of yourself.

I thought you were strong.

But you have given up.

This is it for you then?

You’re going to lay down and die?

You’re going to let your emotions tell you to quit?

You know you’re capable of more than this.

You know that you haven’t really failed until you’ve quit.

And yet here you are.

Here we are.

Just sitting.

Waiting for life to pass by.

It’s never to late you know.

You can still give it your all.

Maybe you’ll still fail.

Maybe trying will bring more harm than anything else.

But if you just keep sitting here like this.

Then you won’t ever even find out.

Is that what you want?

To always wonder what could have been?

Sometimes…

It feels like I don’t even understand you.

 

A letter to myself.
