Tired and Exhausted


My eyes are growing heavy

Sleep screams my name

Rest drags at my feet

I move slowly

But I can still push through

I feel the hope

I cling to it

I've prayed for it

The end of being tired

My feet just feel so heavy,

But my heart is powering through.

I'm pushing, hoping to see the light.

I feel myself slipping.

I'm falling and tumbling.

I'm slipping through the cracks.

You feel it, but you can never see.

I'm exhausted.

Hoping for another breath.

Hoping to feel my head above water.

Hoping to find the light.
