Surrender

A Poem

It be like that sometimes.

given into the bitter taste of defeat

you know I couldn't cast off the flames and the heat

I've tried to cope but there's a part of me that'll never be complete.

Knowing you could side with any other, so why can't you just leave me be?

if you poke a hole in a dam

your fate is no longer in the palm of your hand

it could crash upon you

the current taking you out where you stand

All I know is to make something up or you to hinder

So here I am, here to show you that I've surrendered.
