I'm Tired

I'm tired of pretending.
I'm tired of been strong.
I'm tired of always saying
that nothing is wrong. 

I'm tired of the fake smiles
I'm tired of all the tears
I'm tired of the same sh*t
Year after year.

I'm tired of always apologizing,
For the wrongs I've never done.
I'm tired of always feeling guilty 
As though I pulled the trigger on the gun. 

I’m tired of picking up the pieces.
I’m tired of always doing my best.
For the person I trust the most 
Is the one pushing the knife into my chest.

My hearts turned to stone,
My feelings have disappeared.
I’ve turned into a person,
I never wanted to be. 

I smile no more,
For life gives me no reason to.
I wake up each day,
Dead inside with a glum view. 

I was once afraid of been alone,
But now solitude is my new best friend.
For the greatest lesson I’ve learnt in life
Is that I am the only person I can count on in the end.
