Tired of the attempts that go unnoticed,
the mistakes that outweigh the good,
the happiness that never comes.
Tired of the day to day strife,
the relationships that go nowhere,
the hard work that never pays off.
Tired of that bottomless hole,
the pats on the back that never land,
the tears that seem to mean nothing.
Tired of the haunting of the past,
the success that can’t be found,
the life that seems awkwardly wrong.
