I'm tired.
Tired of feeling lost, afraid, misunderstood.
Tired of wondering if I'm letting someone down by the choices I've made.
I'm tired.
Tired of getting my feelings hurt, my ego bruised, my heart broken.
Tired of showing these varmin called emotions.
I'm tired.
Tired of being me, of being weak.
Tired of trying to be this person I cannot see.
I'm tired.
Tired of all the pain, all the struggle I've put upon myself.
Tired of not being the person I was.
I'm tired.
Tired of hiding, hoping, and healing.
Tired of listening, learning...letting.
I'm tired...I'm tired.
Sometimes I just get tired of it all.

It's been awhile since I've done anything on this site, but it was quite the pleasant surprise to see how many people have liked and commented on this poem...


I cannot convey how absolutely amazing it is to have written something that has touched so many people. Thank you all for reading and relating to my work.

i love this little poem.

its so good, and it reminds me of myself.
and its really just...true...sometimes you do get tired of everything in the world and wish you could just let it go, and just be carefree about everything...but of course, the world is a cruel place and doesnt do that oh so very often...-.-
it is very well written though, i like it
nice work :D

thats how i feel these days
tired about feeling alone
of people only talking
to me when i am really sad
tired emotionally and tired
of living my life like that
juliet-vampiette Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2008
This is put across very well. I almost feel the 'tired' from reading it. I like the way you have structured it with the long winded sentences to add to the feeling.

I identify with this completely. I'm tired, physically, emotionally, creativly. Just tired of living.
sabrinapsycho12 Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2008
very nice
marzipanorsomething Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2007
this is depressing. of course i like depressing, so this is very good.

do you need me to kill someone? 'cause ya know, i am a crazy ass white girl.

no, i don't see a certain someone being pointed out, so i guess that my services aren't needed. sigh.

but i'm sorry that you're tired. remember when we said that we would just stop thinking? just stop thinking about everything altogether? do it.
chikinwang Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2007
Thanks a lot for reading this. I didn't think anyone would notice it being here since I don't get on here that mich anymore. I'm glad that you enjoyed it, though. :)

arizonangel Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2007
I can very easily relate to this. It doesn't seem to matter what you do, you always feel like you've failed. And, after awhile it does get old and you do get tired. Thanks so much for sharing this. :altermind:
