Tired

Posted in My writings tagged , at 9:13 am by mottoblasco

Tired of the monotony

Really need a break

Can’t afford it on so many levels

Why now

What is it I don’t see

Where is the help we were told we had

Does anyone really get me

Does anyone understand

I’m not the only one…am I

I must keep going

Must not even slow down

If I do, I’ll be so far behind

Pushing, pulling, do more

Can’t, but can’t say no

Pretend you can do it

Hold it together

Pretend to be strong

If you don’t…

On top of it all, we’re adding more

Have nothing for myself

Will I ever?

Everyone says “Take a break”

When, where, how

Temporary won’t help, need constant

I’m tired.
