On Knowing When to Stop


When your feet know not where to go,

When your heart hums “Yes” then “No,”

When your thoughts disquiet your soul.

When words fail to save you,

When time flees and leaves no clue,

When your heart betrays your mind,

When your mind questions your heart.

When people leave devoid of trace,

When Spring ends, Fall finds its place.

When circumstances make you dense,

When everything doesn’t make sense.

When you can’t unravel the truth in a lie,

When you can’t look someone in the eye,

When nothing’s left but a mere sigh,

Perhaps it’s time you stop giving a try.
