I am tired of being tired.
I am tired of being everyones stepping stone.
I am tired of having extra meat on my bones.
I am tired of feeling alone and forgotten.
I am tired of never feeling important.
I am tired of all the pain and the hurt.
I am tired of being pushed around and treated like dirt
I am tired of starting to doubt , what I would never dare to doubt.
I am tired of wanting to take the easy way out.
I am tired of being tired.
I am tired of the sickness that haunts me.
I am tired of letting my own brain to taunt me.
I am tired of being called a coward.
I am tired of feeling impowered.
I am tired of always trying to look beyond the bad.
I am tired of always feeling sad.
I am tired of trying so hard to impress.
I am tired of all the burden of my stress.
I am tired of being tired.
I am tired of the clicking tock in my head.
I am tired of wanting to choose death instead.
I am tired of feeling so worthless and having no importance.
I am tired of feeling like my life has no purpose.
I am tired of being tired.
I am tired of setting my goals and dreams aside.
I am tired of always just say " i tired"
I am tired of only ending up as a last choice.
I am tired of lashing out on my body with no remorse.
I am tired of letting life get the best of me.
i am tired of always wondering " what could be"
I am tired of endless hope
I am tired of being this worlds big joke.
I am tired of being tired.
I am tired of being tired you see, for being tired has caused these emotions to pour out of me.
I am tired of being tired
I

I Must say, the bluntness in this poem really brings it alive and can totally be related to.
