So Tired...

So Tired...

A Poem by A.Lee

I’m tired of living in the hurried bustle

Of each and every day

Of filling my time with meaningless tasks

To keep dark thoughts at bay

 

I’m tired of constantly making it seem

That life is far from bleak

Of trying to hold up all those around me

When I myself am weak

 

I’m tired of always holding back tears

When they want to freely flow

Of pushing my feelings so deep inside

And hoping they don’t explode

 

I’m tired of pretending I am strong

When I know I’m really not

And of having no one there for me

When my sanity is shot

 

I’m tired of holding my head at night

And trying not to scream

Then waking up like every morning

Wishing it was all a dream

 

I want someone to take my hand

And tell me its okay

Because I swear to God that I won’t last

If this goes on another day

This is brilliant. I felt the emotion illuminating in each and every word. How you so bluntly said you are tired, and how you wont last, is great. I love it when poems are straight forward like this, because you can relate to the feelings of the poem better. I think these exact thoughts all the time and you have wrote out my emotions in a fantastic form. Great Job.

...Of trying to hold up all those around me
When I myself am weak... i think infact that that is the best proof that we are not week, emotional yes, but strong like a hard candy with soft filling...

your not alone some times we just need a break from life the Drama every thing to take a break and a breather some times its hard to get thoes times. Nice work

I could understand the feelings contain in here. I could relate to it although not all the way. But the term 'tired' has become common to the society today, so pretty much everyone is facing the same emotion. Your expression is well-read through this passage. I hope everything is fine with you.
