Giving Up…

Giving Up--Decuain poem
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona J. Atkinson ©2014

I wrote this poem, sadly, because of a conversation with a person who is dear to me that was experiencing feelings of giving up because of recent circumstances in his life. As we talked, he asked me what empathy meant.  I explained it’s meaning.  His tears moved me to realize that is what he was looking for, and not finding it, he was too weak to continue his search.  The poem is written to express his feelings.  However, I have hope that my actions and prayers will be the helping hand he needs at this time.
