I’m lying still.

In a field of flowers.

I’m running fast.

Never getting anywhere.

So I lie still in a field of flowers.

What’s so wrong with giving up?

 

I’ll tell you.

 

You will never see the world through your eyes.

You will never touch the sun.

You will never feel the wind across your face.

Or the strong earth under your feet.

 

Do I have a problem with giving up?

Yes.

Because you aren’t just giving up on one thing.

You’re giving up on everything.
