I Am Tired

A Cry For Help

By Mercedes ChavezPublished 21 days ago 1 min read

Screaming, clawing, raging...

These thoughts never leave my mind

Always there, always constant

Chaos and destruction

Crawling in my own skin

Wishing that I could just disappear from the world

As if I never existed

To be no one, nothing

Maybe then it will all go away

I only crave silence

The world has been nothing but noise

Many days and nights I've tried to drown it out with music

So loud that I've worried that my eardrums might burst

Music so deafening to drown out the chaos

I cannot stand it anymore

I am tired

Beaten down over and over again

Life has been nothing but cruel

I have had more than my fair share of beatings

Can it not finally end

I am tired

I have no fight left in me

Please... make it stop
