“Never Give Up, Poem,” by JD DeHart

Apr 20th, 2017 | By | Category: Poetry

someone will take you, poem
don’t give up
keep fighting the good fight
chin up

oh, damn
you don’t have a chin
you are so far only made of two
stanzas on a page

let’s pretend the first line
is a pompadour haircut
the second your eyeline
the third your chin

keep that line held up
don’t worry about
the anatomy of
the rest of
the lines.
