I’m Tired by Matasha Lee
My title speaks for itself,
I hardly speak of where I’ve come from, but when I do,
It is only to help someone else understand why I want to lay my head down,
Why tears out of nowhere begins to run down my face,
Why, I constantly feel like giving up,
Or, just want to lie in the bed until I feel like smiling again.
I put years into my dream and I push until my dreams are accomplished, but
The wear and tear from it, gets to me, so much so that I just want to be left alone until I feel better,
But two kids, boy and girl, Amelia and Sean, mama binky and noony, there is no way that I can slow down,
So, I secretly cry, hoping that someone would wipe away my tear and the pain would somehow,
But I find my own hand doing the wiping.
My arms hug me tight.
I pass the words along that I am tired, but do the passing ears, hear me?
Can they spare their space of time, so we can dine on the words of inspiration that fuels my fire to keep going?
I know under a small rock, God has hidden just enough courage, along the way, to help me keep pushing till I reach my destiny,
Until I hear, well done, again,
And I cry and sing the song, “How I got over,”
And I’m back in bed saying, I’m tired.
