Tired


I’m just so tired
The burning desire in my heart is on fire
It burns higher to my throat like a vampire

I’m just so done
before it has even begun
It’s time to run from my loaded gun

I’m just so sad
I’m tired of feeling bad
From all the troubles and struggles that I’ve had

I’m just so scared
Of constantly being unaware
I’m being prepared for these nightmares

I’m just so tired of being tired
Tired of the backfire that I acquired
Tired but inspired to move on and aspired

I’m just so done of being done
Done running away, now I’m being someone
Done playing around, it’s time that I won

I’m just so sad of being sad
Sad from constantly being mad
Sad from it all being too bad

I’m just so scared of being scared
Scared of not being wanted or cared
Scared of always being compared

I’m so tired of being done
I’m so done with being sad
I’m so sad from being scared
I’m not okay but I will be
I’m fine now just so the world can see

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
