I guess there comes a point in a great many people’s lives when enough is enough. To give up is not only a way out, but a very attractive option.
That may arise in an important area such as a relationship or, a relatively minor one; a hobby.
It could come about on a car journey. Having taken a few too many wrong turns, the will to carry on is also lost.
That experience could apply to life itself!
As knocks come a plenty in a life that’s been led to the full.
Could one knock be too many for a man who has been a fool.
The reality of failure can and often does exceed the memory of success.
Would it be correct to say that only death can put bad memories to rest?
If one has ridden the turbulent waves of life and survived,
Would not the memories of those successes override all doubts when revived.
To reason or to debate with oneself is pointless yet it is oneself that lives the indecision.
Memories should be censored and prescribed as a controlled hallucinating ration.
