For the first time

I am giving up.

It doesn’t mean I am less brave or that I have grown weak. It doesn’t even matter that my sanity is no longer intact.

If giving up means I am surrendering it to the high heavens. Take it away.

If it only means it gives me more room and energy to preserve what’s left for Mio. I will do what it takes–even giving up–just to keep me therefore the only person Mio has.

I give up.
