I am tired. . .


I am tired, tired of living,
This double faced life,
This pain and this writhing,
Which cuts me like sword and knife.

My smile is all plastered on my face,
Everyone sees and believes all’s fine,
I am not willing to participate in this race,
Of pleasing all with joy on lips of mine.

Let me cry out and the flood of tears flow,
The dam holding my painful sorrows needs to break,
I will die if my pains I hide and do not to show,
Let me die in peace, in deep slumber, where no one comes to wake.

Just let me go! Let the soul fly away!
For its only turmoil, the more here I stay!

  3. Hi – I can so relate to this. I often talk about the double life I was living before I broke the silence on my abuse. Would you mind if I share this on my blog and Twitter please? I love the way you have written this.

    1. Truly said brother! This I wrote as an example/expression of how hard it is to live under abuse or pressure yet pretend all is good.
