Written by Jacob Ibrag

The tide rises as the thought of

giving up leaves her mind entirely.

To fail without trying was worse than

dying. Unwinding her clenched eyes,

she contemplated the rest of her

life. ‘I refuse to hide.’

  2. I love this poem, it is very inspirational. No one should be afraid to show who they really are, no one should be frightened to go for the things that they want to accomplish. I recently added a poem on my page about self-confidence, check it out when you get the chance and feel free to interact with me and view some of my previous post! 🙂
