I’m Tired (poem)

I’m Tired

I’m tired
of tears that leak
out of my internal faucet
missing its shut off valve

I’m tired
of the tortured
eyes I see staring
back in pity
every morning

running its judgement
over the mistakes I’ve made
in its mirrored image

I’m tired
of my loose change
not adding up
to collect
on my dreams of being free

I’m tired
of this fleshy cage rigged
of coarse bone and attitude

I’m just tired
of being me
