I'm so tired of being weary
I sleep, I rest.
I take a moment to relax
To no avail, the fatigue creeps back in.
I've been worn down, Almost like a nail
That's been picking at the bricks
That starts to encompass me.
They tower taller every single day
As my tears keep falling
My hole fills, now I find I'm drowning
All because of past pain
So don't throw me a rope
Or a boat to get in
I think I just ultimately
Need to learn how to swim
No matter my surroundings
Or the echoes that I hear
I know within my spirit
That God is always near.
“Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray my dreams, God, you keep
From going down that path I’ve known
But gently remind me I’m not alone.”
