Jan 2014
You've taken everything from me;
what else do you need?
All you do is take and take,
and all I do is give.
What else do I have that you need?
My dwindling pride?
My humanity?
My youth?
Because all of that is gone now
because of you.
You ask for more than I have ever had,
and give nothing in return.
I have nothing more to give,
because you've taken it all away.
The last thing that I can give is my life,
and I will gladly give it
because I am better off without it.
Take the last bit of me,
but before you do,
I ask of you only one thing.
Give.
Give something to someone
and ask nothing in return.
Give, sir.
I dare you.
