Im Tired. - Poem by Desiree Winters

I'm tired.
Im tired.
Tired of the hurt and the pain.
I'm tired of you people not treating me the same.
If for any reason I'm hurting I have to be the one to blame.
It's my fault. I did it. I'm wrong.
I won't be able to take this for too long.
Every morning I hesitantly walk in here.
By the end of the day I've shed at least one tear.
I stare around and wonder why.
Why is it different for the other girls and guys?
I don't bother anyone, I stay to myself.
The only time I talk is when talked to, or for help.
My eyes are watering and my head is pounding.
The high stress alarms are sounding.
Im so overwhelmed and so under noticed.
Ive already told you and my body language shows this.
But you don't care, its not you.
Im just a shipmate, not your family, lover or boo.
When will it begin to matter how I feel?
Is it not until I say that I am going to do drugs, steal and kill?
Look at my hurt, look at my pain.
I feel as though Im going insane.
Im tired.

    Desiree, , , , (Tears, ,) I feel your pain and hurt, and have experienced much the same...This is a great poem, I dont care what Adeline says (although she is entitled to her opinion) . Poetry is like any other form of art, the appreciation and beauty of it lies in the eye and heart of the beholder. Dont let any 'nay-sayers' discourage you from writting more. (Report) Reply

    Take every line and turn it positive and, my Oh my, what a diference it will make. Sure it is you. Everyone else has it just as hard but they have learned that bitching is not the answer. Now If you will just read my poems and tell me what you think of each, that will be your turn around. Try it and be prepared for many a surprise.
