I'm So Tired...


Tired of trying

Tired of crying

Tired of being put down

Tired of being let down  


Tired of struggling to keep up

Tired of struggling to live up

Tired of being picked apart

Tired of being pulled apart  


Tired of never being good enough

Tired of having to call your bluff

Tired of always wanting you

Tired of hoping you’ll want me too  


Tired of the stupid fights

Tired of the long, teary nights

Tired of always wishing

Tired of your verbal fishing  


Tired of taking all the blame

Tired of playing this stupid game

Tired of dreaming of better days

Tired of looking for better ways  


I am just so tired of you

So damn tired of not getting through.

I’m tired of giving you my best

Just leave me be, let me get some rest.



This was written a couple of years ago, and those of you who know me also know that I am way past this point in my life, and well on my way to a bright and sunny future.   I just wanted to post it in the hopes it may help someone else reach down within themselves and find the strength to strap it on.   Hugs.

I'm sorry ClassyClaws... I hope you find the strength within yourself to break away from it, it is a horrible way to live. Hugs.

Don't think I'm quite as strong as Jessie, though, I haven't beat the crap out of anyone. Yet. lol<br />

Of course she does!!! And since you are my sister, and she is your twin, that makes her my sister too, doesn't it??? YAY!!!

Thanks Jessie!!! <br />

It is a fine day when you find the strength to break away from the toxic people in your life, isn't it?<br />
