My tiredness can overwhelm
to make me feel I’ve lost the helm.
Sometimes it’s like a little boat,
sinking fast but still afloat.
As there’s no one else around
to this sinking boat I’m bound.
Tossed and battered by each wave,
waiting for its watery grave.
All around dark clouds of gloom,
intensify my fears of doom.
In this relentless stormy sea,
I foresee the end of me.
I’ve heard of instincts to survive,
and hidden strengths to stay alive.
Mine’s never been a half-
instead I feel like giving up.
My time has come, I can’t pretend,
my tether’s come right to the end.
The pressure’s caused my will to crack,
like last straw broke the camel’s back.
I can no longer have belief,
that I will somehow get relief.
I’ve reached the point where I can’t cope,
and now I feel I’ve lost all hope.
The more I try, the more I find
that tiredness engulfs my mind.
Every muscle I have strained,
but now I’m weary, worn out, drained.
My exhaustion is so deep
that all I want to do is sleep.
So now I will lay down my head,
if I awake, I won’t be dead.
