The Long Long Tired


It isn’t just the body

that gets tired


sometimes


it's the soul

and

the heart.


They can feel

heavy

exhausted

weighted.


And sleep won’t fix it.


Sometimes

the will

the drive,

they need a break.


It’s the long tired

The long long tired

The tired that years of living wrong bring.


The tired that comes from selling a piece of your soul everyday


There’s an anchor

on the spirit

It stays above water sometimes

but when the day is long

and the laughter is forced,

it gets pulled under


Even mindlessly typing

is hard

when

you’re

this

tired


The body feels it too


down into the bones

and behind the eyes


Some nights,

the mind demands a rest.

It needs time away

from the constant abuse

and stimulation.


I don’t know how parents do it.
