bone tired

I feel so tired. 

So so tired of being

I am so tired 
of fighting for everything 
for the basic rights I should 
be guaranteed. 

I feel so tired 
of having to explain that
i deserve to live in
this country. 

I am so tired of 
the protests, 
of the speeches, 
of the votes,
i feel so tired

i feel so tired of 
explaining that my body is mine
and nobody else’s. 

I feel so tired of 
having fire, 
and fighting
and fighting
and fighting. 

I feel so tired of explaining
that racism exists 
and that it’s important we stop it. 

I can’t find the will to 
keep fighting sometimes,
barely dragging myself up from the floor. 

i’m so tired
