The Man Who Doesn't Give Up (Guest Post)



Fellow wordsmith Luke Davis, The Naive Idealist, graced us with yet another wonderful demonstration of what it means to be a Warrior Poet. With that said, I leave you with his latest contribution; The Man Who Doesn’t Give Up.

Have you ever truly met such a man.
A man who doesn't give up.
You can't use a word like stubborn,
He isn't stubborn, he doesn't cling to his ideals
He creates, molds and shapes them until time itself can't break them.

Have you ever truly seen such a man in action.
A man who doesn't give up.
Relentless is not a word you would use.
He isn't relentless, he doesn't have some end point to achieve.
You see life is his journey and he knows it has no end.

Have you ever witnessed such as he.
A man who doesn't give up.
Strength is a concept you can't apply.
He isn't strong, he has been broken many a time before.
But he knows he will be back better than before.

Have you ever heard of such a man.
A man who doesn't give up.
Time has little meaning for such as he.
Time is but a tool in his belt.
A measure of how far he has come and how much yet he can do.

If you were ever to meet such a man.
A man who doesn't give up.
Be warned for he holds creation at his fingertips.
He will wield it over and over again
And the world will forever change before him.
Luke Davis
