    I'm so tired of getting up in the morning knowing that I will have to face another day of distress
    These thoughts go through my head as I get dressed
    I must incessantly follow rules that don't accentuate my abilities
    Yet I have to go through an entire day being subject to vast humilities

    I am tired of having my heart broken by people who just don't have a care in the world
    You honestly asked me to be your wife when all I really wanted was to be your girl
    Your emotions are so fickle that one week you love me always and forever
    And the next you don't know so I don't see how things between us can get any better

    I tried being there for you whenever possible
    To listen to your complaints and the people you used to love and be hospitable
    But when I turned around because I needed someone to talk to you were hardly ever there
    And because I didn't always talk to you about how much I loved you or missed you it was like if it's not about you didn't even care

    I'm tired of waiting for a love that I thought already existed
    When I told you how I did feel it must've flown right over your head because it's obvious you missed it
    I've tried so hard to prove my love for you, but what's the use
    Your heart's made of stone so there's no way I can even get through

    I'm trying to deal with life but it's not easy
    Worrying about school, people, and rumors is just not pleasing
    I'm getting weak from all the work I put in to appease you
    Whether you like it or not, my love for you will always be true

    But I'm just tired...

    I thank you all for taking the time to read and reply to my poem. I am indebted to you since this is my first poem on here and you have shown me love. I'll try to keep them coming...gradually.
