i'm tired || Mental Health Matters (19)

FREE WRITING

10

the words i'm tired
are all too familiar
as a split second lie
when someone asks how you are

but sometimes it's not a lie
sometimes it's part of the truth
just not in a way
you would think

i'm tired
not because of a long day at school
but because of a constant battle
for control of myself

i'm tired
not because i took a walk
but because i have to scream
to drown out the other voice

i'm tired
not because i had trouble going to sleep
but because my mind was racing
when it should be resting

i'm tired
because it's exhausting
to be at war
with yourself
for people with mental illness, sometimes merely living can be just as tiring as anything else. remember to stay safe, drink some water, and take care of yourselves <3

    i haven't seen a few of the last ones, but I'd still like to say that I really appreciate the fact that you're taking the time to write this series. It brings attention to a lot of things, and I'm so thankful for it. The poem is powerful as always!
