The towel feels soft in my hands

And all I have to do

want to do

could do

is throw it in

toss it in

give in.

But I’ve been a quitter

every day of my life

all my life

in all I try.

For once,

I want to finish the game

my only aim

end this game.

I’m not asking to be a winner

I just don’t want to be a quitter

a deserter

this time.
