Don’t quit

You feel pain right now
you feel uncertainty
you feel exhausted
as if the serpent itself
has lifted its head out of the drain
slipping within the holes of you
wrapping its body amongst
that pink squishy part of you
leaving only the words
quit, submit
but wait
what if you do
and what if you’re wrong
what if there is life
after this?

If you give in
submit
quit
what if nothing
isn’t it
what if there is more?

The supreme dictator
shackling your soul
determining your eternity
you had more years left
before their judgement
before their ruling
you gave in sooner
now you’re there
awaiting their courts
feeling the ruling within you
what if there isn’t anything
but this
what if nothing
isn’t a gift you’ll get?

So rather than wallow
within all this deep hatred
and pain you’re feeling
enjoy this instead
find the parts that are worth
the pain you’ve put in
because nothing
isn’t a certainty.

Live,
live long
don’t quit
because nothing isn’t a certainty
and what waits is unknown
and the supreme dictator
shackling your soul
could be worst that the pain
of this living space.

Thanks for reading.
