Don't give up

They may break your heart
tear you apart, and you,
you’ve done nothing.

They may hurt you
with vicious lies,
manipulate you,
with sugary hellos,
endless goodbyes.

Don’t let them control you,
have every power
over you,
or break you apart.

Realize their only power
is what you give them.
It’s internal, a battle
waged within your soul.
Don’t give up.

Susan Elliott
