Book of Nero
This is my journal. I am Nero! c:
Until The End
When life beats you down, and you get on your knees and stop fighting back, what do you expect? Do you expect life to leave you alone, and walk away? No, it kicks you while you're on your knees. Every time you give up, you're just dooming yourself further and further into failure. If giving up actually worked, and made the challenge end, I would just give up... but giving up only makes it worse.
For every time I was too depressed or too hurt, every time I felt like I had no place in the world, every time a person betrayed me so horribly, I was without words... every time I said "I give up", did that make the pain stop? I said "I give up", and did people stop betraying me? Did I find my place? Did I stop being depressed and did I stop being hurt? Nothing changed.
So why give up? Why give in? It's not enough, it never is. I'll go on, I'll live it out. When life beats me down, I'll stand back up and crush life to pieces. When hardships fill my life, I'll fill the lives of those hardships with hardships. When I'm lonely and depressed, I'll make the cause of my loneliness and depression lonely and depressed.
I'll glide through this challenge called life on wings made out of this cynical knowledge, because giving up is for idiots that think it will make it all go away. If giving up changed anything, then I would get on my knees and just admit defeat... but giving in has never changed a thing, so I will go on until the end.

I was sure I commented on this one...What I thought I wrote was: It's not about whether you fall down, but whether or not you get back up. Wonder what happened to my original comment, I don't see it.

I can't express in words alone how much this sounds like me as well...I've been through a lot of $%i! and would think constantly to myself how much I wanted to give up on every damn thing..but I said to myself that this can't be, and life has to go on. Its just a phase that I will eventually get over with..but I cannot ever give up on myself.
Yet another excellent poem as well cat_3nodding Keep them coming o u o!
