When I wanna give up but God won't let me.
I Threw In the Towel

I threw in the towel today,
called it quits, gave up.
No longer wanting to even try,
I turned my back on my dreams.

“It’s too hard,” I said to myself,
allowing myself to feel broken yet again.
Shame overtook me and I said, “No more,”
to no one in particular, I guess.

I threw in the towel today,
sick of dreams being shattered.
I’ve set my goals, steps to reach them,
failing time and time again.

Something happened when I gave it up,
as I felt the sorrow and the guilt.
I threw in the towel on my dreams today,
but God threw it back at me and said,

“Get up, my child and dry your tears.
I’m not done with you…
yet.”
