I'm Tired by Joseph Beard Jr


I try my hardest to smile and overlook everything

the things people do to me

the time i've wasted trying to make sure others were okay

the love i've gave and the tears i've cried but

my strength is wearing thin

I'm tired

I'm tired of being put down, talked about, and used

I'm tired

I'm tired of the sleepless nights and no one appreciating me

YES! I'm tired

Sometimes i wanna give up and throw in the towel but thats not me

I wanna wash my hands and call it quits but I can't

I'm tired of not knowing and not having the support I need

I'm tired!

    Thanks for posting. I can relate to this piece. I think a lot of people can. I hope knowing that some people don't have what's best for you in their heart will help you move forward. There are people who love you, and people who use you. Let the people who love you build you up, and rebuild your strength. Know your worth. I look forward to reading more from you.
