Awash in Thoughts

Giving up is hard to do;
With so much at stake,
It’s easy to wander from you.
We want our cake;
Can’t we eat it, too?

Our minds are awash in thoughts
Of how life’s supposed to be.
Don’t let the tide
Wash you out to sea–
The undercurrent drowns many.

Giving in’s so hard, I think,
But thoughts are little more
Than darkened intent turned to ink;
You don’t have to struggle anymore;
Resistance just leaves you sore.

Listen to the master of men;
Submit to Him;
It’s only hard giving in
When you think you can win.
