Keep Holding On

I know that this sounds crazy, but I just can't seem to let it go.

Everyone around me keeps telling me to stop hanging on, and to just go with the flow.

No matter what the situation, and yes, that does include love, that has never been my outlook on any circumstance,

Because I believe that life rewards the brave, and that things work out for you when you are willing to take that chance. 

I believe in always fighting for what you want, and not giving up no matter how hard things may get,

Because you have the power to change whatever you want, and nothing in your life is ever set.

Everyone keeps telling me that waiting another six months is insane, 

But if I were to give up, than I would only have myself to blame.

I would rather hang on and be disappointed in the end knowing that I gave it everything I had,

Because if I were to give up, I would always wonder what if, and that would drive me mad.

I have hung on for a little over five months, so what is the point of giving up now,

Because no matter what I am going to make this happen, it is just a matter of figuring out how.

But regardless, I don't really care, because I feel it in my body that this will all workout,

And I can say that with complete confidence, and without even a hint of any doubt.

I know you give up easy, and that is completely okay, but no matter what, that will never be me,

Because I know exactly who I am and who I want to be.

You were not there to hear the things that he said and to see the way that he looked in my eyes,

And I had butterflies, yet I was comfortable, and I never felt that with any other guys.

I am willing to wait for him, regardless of the bumps in the road that we may hit,

But that is life, and that doesn't mean that you should just throw in the towel and quit.

Like I said, if he didn't want to talk to me, then he simply wouldn't,

And I know that everyone is telling me to give up, but deep down I know that I shouldn't.

I can't wait for the day to come when I can prove it to you that good things come to those who wait,

Because I am willing to do whatever it takes in order to get what I want, because I make my own destiny, and I don't believe in fate.

Paul T

Very good fluctuating between long sentences and short sentences. However, nobody should ever be in a rush to get into a relationship or even married.


Thank you so much! I completely agree. I would rather be single for years while waiting for the right one, then to rush into something that my heart is not really set on. 


Thank you so much! I really appreciate it!
