Trying Counts

“Trying counts,” she said to me.
“But for what?” I wanted to reply.
What good does it do, when you’re always brought down?

It isn’t trying, when you’re the only one putting in effort.
There’s a different word for that,
it’s called “Desperation”.

How long is someone to struggle,
before they can’t anymore?
When is it considered ‘letting go’
and not ‘giving up’?

No one ever knows.
So the pain always continues.
Because no one ever knows when Hope
has left them all alone.
