Poem : Invested

I am so tired

that my head is pulsing.

Such enormous levels of stress

can cause convulsing.

It has been said.

The convoluted story

makes my head ache

and I hold my head.

Most people who

hear the story

would say

what difference does it make?

That is because it is not

important to them like it is to me.

I am invested in it.

They are quite free

to give an opinion,

to offer advice

and to keep it moving.

They are very good natured

and meaning well

but largely unaffected.

Meanwhile, I have

to think twice

because it is about my life

and I am the one that is
