So Tired

What has turned some of our young people so cold that many of them seem to move around without a conscious or soul?

The callousness, the viciousness has to astound even the sternest of us…

The sounds of sirens screaming in the atmosphere have become as common as turning on your radio…

I am so tired of reading another headline of a teen found dead with a bullet in his head…

So tired of hearing about drugs and people destroying everything they love…

My heart just can’t take another child abuse case…

So tired of people dying before their time…

So tired of criminals getting away with vicious crimes…

So tired of racism and people blaming others for their own sickness…

Mass destruction is no longer a myth because in certain parts of the world we are headed for this…

Soon it will no longer be a thing about Black or White after all, what does color has to do with anything…Only in the mind of the insecure do colors play a part…

I am so tired of writing another sad poem about the homeless, about racism, about the wars that are coming closer to our shores…

So tired of watching young men forget to pull up their pants and give positive energy a chance…

So tired of hearing and seeing so many young people waste their time and mind as if it was not a crime…

I was once told that everything has a limit, my tears have become living proof of that statement…

So tired, so tired, of pushing people who should be pushing themselves…

Asked yourself aren’t you tired too?
