the year of lyrics: a poetry project

my search for inner-peace, one poem at a time

Day 276 – Alive

Leave a comment

I’m tired of being tired
And being restless to the core.
I’m exhausted, I think I lost it
Dropped my knees down to the floor,

And it aches in places
Where pain should never be.
Taking painkillers to be preventative,
But they prevent me from bein’ free.

So I learn to rid myself of shackles,
Burn the chains right off my limbs.
Now hear this: I’m fearless,
I will give in to all of my whims.

And I’ll challenge the chapters
That omniscient ones have written;
I’ll trudge through life’s terrors,
All that matters is that I’m livin’.
