I'm Tired


I'm tired of people messing with me
I'm tired of people treating me wrong
I'm tired of people saying I stank
I'm tired of people remembering the past
I'm tired of black people
I'm tired of stupid people
I'm tired of selfish people
I'm tired of being the target all the time
I'm tired of feeling sad
I'm tired of people thinking there better than everybody else
I'm tired of people not appreciating me
I'm tired of being tired
I'm tired of being tired
I'm just tired

    You listen to me your from birmingham right? Well i can tell by your name you are not from this country so you have no right to be racist. You're 'tired of black people' huh? Well maybe this country is tired of immigrants. So why don't you stop being racist or get back on the boat to your own country and be racist there. (Report) Reply
