Giving Up

someone that I loved
once told me –

(when everything hurt,
and I did not know
how to go on)

– that I should give up.
that there was
no point
to anything.

I was brave enough
to ignore them.

years later, my brother
gave me a gift.
a hunk of marble.
it said:

“never, ever, ever
give up”

so I didn’t.
