Sometimes, the time might be ripe to accept defeat.
To say, I’ve lost,
You got me, I have nothing left to offer.
To say, I did my best,
I’ve given it everything I’ve got,
And it just wasn’t good enough.
Sometimes, just sometimes, the time may be ripe to walk away
To lay down your weapons
and to accept your fate.
To say, “I surrender”.
Sometimes, just sometimes, it’s only in accepting the defeat,
That the ultimate victory can be had.
And sometimes, just sometimes,
As hard as it is, it might be okay to give it all up,
To offer it up to the heavens,
Surrendering your will to something greater.
And sometimes just sometimes, that’s totally OK.
Not because you’re a quitter, but because you recognize you are limited, and that some things remain well beyond your control.
