I quit

I told myself I couldn't do it any more so I quit
I shut my mind out to all my friends I quit
I experienced something that made me think it was the 
end of the world for me, I said I might as well quit
I sit on my bed shook my head came to myself 
started to smile and said all this quitting is the beginning 
of a fresh start.
