Don’t You Dare

don’t you dare stop breathing

don’t you dare let go

don’t you dare surrender

don’t you dare not grow

 

i see the pain in your eyes

i hear it in your voice

i see the darkness over you

but i know you have a choice

 

don’t give in, don’t give up

don’t do this to me now

don’t give in, don’t give up

let me show you how

 

how to breathe, how to stand

how to jump, how to land

how to sing, how to scream

how to plan, how to dream

 

don’t you dare stop trusting

don’t you dare forget

don’t you dare believe them

don’t you dare regret

 

i see the burden on your heart

i sense it in your soul

i hear the lies beseeching  you

but i know you can be whole

 

don’t give in, don’t give up

don’t let this evil win

don’t give in, don’t give up

please just let me in

 

together we can wage this war

together we can slam the door

together we can face the night

together we can raise the light

    1. Thank you! I write the first drafts of my poems that way—not having to worry about punctuation helps my thoughts flow better. I usually add it in the correct grammar later, but this time, it felt better to leave it that way. =)
