She's Tired Of Fighting - Poem by Scarlett Leftwich

She wishes she could surrender her soul,
She's tired of fighting.
She dreams of shedding her life, leaving it behind,
finding her true self will be hard to find.
She's tired of fighting.
For so long she has been a stranger to her own heart,
never being able to tell hate and love apart.
She's lost in a world that, for most, does not exist.
She holds her breath and starts to run towards a life more blissful than this.
She's tired of fighting.
