Not Quitting

When you know that,
Despite your hardest tries
Your best is not good enough
Where failure is the only option
A choice without variety
Late nights working hard
Eyes going blood-red and wide
Brain working on over time
Concentration wavering with each word
Bleeding brain cells spinning
Crying muscles pulling still
The heart is pumping fast
But you can feel a few fuses burning
Feet are tired from running miles
To approach no destination
No drug could keep such a worn out body going
Not even fire could wake this state
Giving up might be the only way to win
Quitting is never quitting if you didnít even begin
