Try by TAY
I should have fought harder
I messed up
My intentions were good
And I never meant to fuck up
Now I’m standing at this crossroad
My heart making it’s final distress call
I’ve shed all the tears my eyes were willing to give
They’ve swollen from how much they’ve had to bawl
You are my heart
I always expected that you and I would weather every storm
I am vulnerable and humble
Because watching you leave would see my whole world crumble
I changed and got carried away
I look at this new guy and it drives me insane
I had my hand on the pulse of what made you happy
I couldn’t believe a day I wouldn’t be able to call you baby
There is still hope
However little left
I’m willing to keep on the fight till my last breath
You might not understand what it means to have you
But understand this
Till tomorrow I haven’t found anyone like you
It’s taken me this long to realize you are the one
But I’m willing to do everything in my power to let the fire burn
I’m asking for one last chance to say yes
My pride and my fears
I’ve seen are baseless
You found me out when no one knew me
You pissed me off without warning
And it was cool to me
I don’t want to lose you
I hope you know
And if I ever failed
It was because the true love I have for you
I didn’t show
Here I am
Freezing in this cold
The only thing burning are the candles that spell your name in bold
Forgive me and let me make you happy again
Forgive me for the horrible things I said
I’m ready to be the one you truly adore
But please don’t let this fire burn out
One by one
Everything won’t be easy
If I said it would
That would be a lie
All I’m asking from you
Can you please try?
Sometimes it’s not forgetting or failing to realize how important what you have is that can be the problem but not doing enough to hold on to it when it’s slipping away.
“Try” was written by me to speak to the struggles of relationships I have that are either toxic or invaluable. We all have a variety of those but which ones can you not live without and what are you doing to keep them. I have let many “leave” my life this year because I was dealing with a significant amount of depression and the consequences of some of the mistakes I made but time passed and I held on to that which is important to me. I don’t know what you have right now in your life that needs the extra push, it’s needs a bit more effort, more dedication, it needs that “I’m sorry”. Reach out and TRY. It’s the best you can do and the only way to ensure regret doesn’t ruin you.

awww … but not every relationship needs more “try”
the only try might just be trying so much to leave the relationship with ur head and mind still in place. 🙁
Very emotive piece . Thanks for the remainder , It’s never to late to change or try . That way you never have any regrets or what if’s? . Thanks Sanmi
I needed this.
There’s a lot of power in your words, a lot of emotion, and also sincerity. Continue to wow us
wonderful, as always. And right on time.
I hope this encourages someone to take that necessary step. well said.
Awwww… sigh. Can relate to this. 😵😵😵… Tough. Needed to read this to be honest. Nice
Deep. Love is a two-edged sword.
👏👏👏 Strong and very emotional words. “No harm in Trying” they say, but the purpose of trying have to be worth the extra push. Nice one Sanmi!!!!!
I came here today because I knew I would find the strength I need to keep trying. This beautiful piece of literature touched me in a special way probably because of my state of mind. You thank me for reading, I thank you even more for writing.
