I Am So Tired

Updated on June 13, 2019

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Behind the mayhem
Behind the mayhem

I am so tired I don’t know what to do

I know the stresses of life isn’t anything new

I work hard daily but just can’t make ends meet

I walk in search of deliverance till sores hug my feet

The TV turns on and it is the same old same old

Political lies, poor nation dies, this shit is getting old

I boot up my computer to see what’s going on online

But all I see is news of cyber war and financial crime

The system is broken and needs to be fixed

No, scrap that, the system needs to be replaced

Before the threat of terrorism makes our freedom get erased.


What’s up with all these black men walking around with their asses out?

Calling each other nigger then complain when the same word leaves the white man’s mouth

Many live in their colorful lives and ignore the pain the rest of the earth feels

Disposing of graded food while many children are unable to feed

Don’t try to plug our ears as the young girls scream

I, I am just so tired of your bare face lies

Shut up! Just shut the hell up.

You want to see my soul disappear, you want me to give up

But I will rise from the ashes of despair like the great Phoenix

I will cast judgment on the wicked who performs their evil tricks

I will make the Earth open up and swallow your great towers

I will take your soul along with any powers


Wait, now you bend on your knees and cry for forgiveness?

When you hide the truth from the lost letting them wonder in be wilderness

I condemn you and hold you deeply in contempt

For my love is already shared and your name is absent

Go now and crawl on your belly like a slithering serpent your are

Because you have brought famine, grief, suffering and war

I condemn you for all eternity

Now we rebuild, now we move on in love and Unity.

      That took an angry turn. I’m tired of many things too. Never stop trying to make the world a better place.
