I am exhausted…

I am exhausted…

and it is ok

I am exhausted

and some days I cry

I am exhausted

because I put in an honest days work

I am exhausted

yet I don’t feel tired

I am exhausted

of perfection

I am exhausted

of social media illusion

I am exhausted

of trying to please

I am exhausted

for caring to much, and not enough

I am exhausted

for trying to answer the unanswerable

I am exhausted

of negativity and the lack of positivity

I am exhausted

of single gain societies

I am exhausted

of humanity forgetting we are all the same on the inside

I am exhausted

from the storm

I am exhausted

because one way is too much, and the other is not enough

I am exhausted

from raising kids to be polite, to appreciate a door held open for them, to accept help, to see people and not colours, to not judge, to accept, to be kind, to help others, to work hard to get what you want, to learn that life doesn’t hand you freebies, and that it is ok to be upset that change takes a while

I am exhausted

because I choose to be a women that loves when a man wants to help her, because I am a women that loves to help others, because I want to raise my kids to have the morals and values I grew up with, because I value putting the work in to gain the respect of others, because I want my kids to say thank you, and hello, and to offer help to those in needs.

I am exhausted

But you know what? The human I will be, and the people that will surround me, will be gracious, compassionate, giving, kind, accepting, and polite.

I am exhausted

And it is ok
