Different Cases For Different People - Poem by Shilesha Johnson

I went to sleep upset
I woke up angrier
I had a chance to sleep things off
And when you come to me you'll be a stranger
You have so much nerve
That was something that YOU deserved
Because I know that I did not do anything wrong

I went to sleep pissed off
My respect for you has been lost
I am so tired of dealin
I know your hurt and need time for healin
But my time, my all, you can't be stealin
You taken things out on me
And that is not a state in which I want to be

You try to put pressure
Saying that I could loose you forever
And someday it will be too late
Well if it doesn't come back
Then we're not meant to be soul mates
I think that being apart is best
Because being with you and this situation
Is too much stress

These are different situations
But all going on in my life
And I realized it is how it is
Weather it’s wrong or right
I’m tired
Tired of everything
I’m jus tired and I have to do me
Cause see I’m fed up
And im done
I’m not going to run
Or shy away from all my problems
I’m just going to do my best to solve em
And leave it at that
It might not be a good thing
But this is where I'm at
