To surrender is to:
Breathe in the unforgivable toxins that assault your most precious lungs
Yes, you know the danger that awaits you and you continue to welcome it
You inhale the negative possibilities,
The indiscriminate liabilities,
The physically-impairing invalidities
Allowing them to consume you
But presume that you, for a second,
Stopped this? Well, maybe not this
But, in time? And with time?
Perhaps you’ll learn to not surrender so easily
Reconsider your strengths and rid of failed attempts
For failure is just a mistake in disguise
Ready for transformation into realizations of new visions
See, each incision
With mistakes you carve into you the most unique scars
That toughen your skin, make you stronger within.
So if today you must surrender to the whims of defeat
Know that your damaged lungs and scars do not stop you from moving.
You have feet left to follow,
And mistakes left to make.
