Enabler - Poem by Haley Akin

My mind... it is tired
This body is too weak
I am spent with all the effort
Of the oppressors I can't beat

No matter what I've tried
Nothing changes in the end
Ripped through with these resentments
There is nothing left to mend...

This is what they want
To see me fall and fail
But they've got another thing coming
When they look behind this veil

I can make a difference
I control what I can do
No one's going to enable me
I will fight to make it through

I'm sick of this cycle
Placing blame on one another
Make changes in your life
No depending just on others

Fight for what you want
Don't just sit and wait to see
Blaze your own path
Help yourself to set you free

    Love this one, you were absolutely right. Once I figure out how to friend someone, i an learn to put these inspirational poems in my favorites. This allows the reader to see how tired and broken you are, yet not giving in to the temptation of a pity party. Great job (Report)Reply

    'My mind... it is tired
    This body is too weak
    I'm spent with all the effort
    Of the oppressors I can't beat'

    These lines are dynamic and well penned. Never forget prayer, the power of positive energy and attitudes and friends who care and wish to help you in your struggles, if you will let them. I have a poem titled 'On Behalf Of Your Friends' which might remind that friends do care and suffer with us in our adversity. Stay strong. Terence :)
