I will never throw in the towel when it comes to writing. I may not blog every day (despite wanting to participate daily in JusJoJan), but I write every day, both poetry and in a journal. Also, at this point, I will never throw in the towel when it comes to praying the rosary, as I have done so every day for probably 6 years (thanks be to God). It seems more likely that I will throw in the towel on all of life before stopping those 2 things! Nevermind that giving up on life does sometimes seem likely….but that is a whole other topic!
I am never giving up:
Standing in the storm,
Underneath is solid rock,
Something keeps me warm.
Throwing in the towel is no
Option now for me,
I’ll use it to dry my tears
When sun comes to me.
(Just realized I rhymed “me” with “me” — that’s stream-of-consciousness writing for you)
One thought on “Never Giving Up”
Sadly, I know that feeling all too well and wouldn’t want it for my worst enemy. Antidepressants helped me, though they came with their own problems but my doctor prescribed them to me. Routine and habits sure help. What helps even more are good distractions, go on a walk, listen music, write, read, sit in the sun. Good luck!
