Does Anyone Else Get Tired


Does anyone else get tired

To the point that you don’t give a shit

So sad that you’d just as soon throw in the towel

And cry out to the cosmos I QUIT

When depression rears its ugly countenance 

When apathy holds onto its gain

This is the time for patience and temperance

I’d pass on a pound of indifference

In favor of a teaspoon of pain

Feeling anything is better than feeling nothing at all

The numbness clouds the soul and the mind

Neither mountain nor ocean

Can rival human emotion

In our secular nature resides the divine

The first four lines put perfectly in to words how I often feel. Excellent poetry, SB.

Yeah. Right now I’m just a little out of it. I’m still “writing” like a mad fool...and “Ending Times” gave me that writer’s sense of satisfaction that I don’t often achieve these days. But yeah, tired...physically, emotionally, spiritually... I know that hope exists somewhere out there. Right now I think it’s just over the horizon.
