I gave up not because I couldn’t do it,
I gave up because I was a fool
Who listened to them,
When they told me, I’m going nowhere.
Yes, I gave up, I was excited at first,
But I was short-sighted
I couldn’t picture myself winning,
Because I was weak to my opponents,
I couldn’t fight back, and even if I did
I couldn’t do it with the same energy,
It was taken away, and I let it happen.
I blamed no one, I hold myself responsible,
Because I saw them discouraging me,
But I couldn’t do anything about it,
I let them remind me about “no one in your family was this”
I let them wash my brain away,
And erased the thought, “everybody has their destiny”
I let them take all that, and won me over
Till I couldn’t do it but give up.
When someone asked me why I gave up,
I always tell them I was an idiot,
They say I shouldn’t take it hard on myself
But how the f**k am I supposed to be easy on me
When I let negative-minded people take over me?
Sometimes I sit back and rethink,
I was just a fragile kid, who needed one push,
But that wasn’t enough reason for me to give up,
I should have tried, at least I’d still be on it,
But I choose to give up, just like that,
And now I can’t kick the ball.
