|Now that you have cleared your mind...start over. You have the right to be tired, but it appears the world does not allow it. Whenever you feel distraught...think of those unable to leave their bed due to illness, or think of the Hawks soaring in the sky and feel their power!
Make a list of everything and everyone dear to you! Then take Vivarin and drink coffee...your but will start moving and your mind will clear away the thoughts you have written!
I think Jesus was tired of carrying that big wooden cross to die on for our sins...please gain strength and love life each day.

You can feel you just manybe think right now you can't, You can be a strong person, get that tired feeling out of your system. and be on the way to finding some happiness. Keep your spirits up, it is important you do this too.|

|Expressed with honesty and just the right words. No masks.
Society expects us to be at our best, always.
Although these are difficult moments, we have a right to fragility, fatigue, even depression. This is often seen as an illness, but it does have a function; it's more like a symptom that is telling us something.
Your layout reflects the state you are in, very suitable for the content.
And I agree with Jackie's advice too...

|Dang! That just about says it all, Dave. Ha! Me and my Kentucky Buddy were talking about the mistake we both made when we were born - we had obviously bought a ticket to the wrong world! Maybe, next time around, we will just hang out in the afterlife train station and watch all those other idiots boarding their trains.

|Sometimes, a good many nights of eight hours sleep helps; and I don't mean that facetously...really. A tired body is a tired mind; a time when we have doubts about ourselves and others, and cannot rationalize the "small" things. In the scope of our total lives, so much is really "small" things. Don't allow others to mold your thoughts and feelings; it's only important for YOU to know who, what you are.
I learned all this when aging :o)

|Dave, I have felt this way so many, many times. You have
spoken for many. Just hold on to the faith. We are survivors.
|Reviewed by Gwen Dickerson
|Well stated Dave! There are those times when the same situations and problems drain and sadden us. Times when our efforts seem uneffective and our dreams elude us. Perhaps a change of situation or location might be of help. A new hobby, vacation or a new "face" can be very refreshing.|

|I’m tired of being “strong,”
i’m weak, i’m fragile,
I see from the other comments Dave, that most have either arrived or will soon arrive to this point. I know that I can relate to this in the extreme. I wish that I knew the answer for us all. One day at a time sir...one day at a time.

|Dave, this is excellent!
I can so relate to this poem.
This is so powerful, emotional, and truly speaks loudly even though written softly, of the 'selfishness and lack of consideration and inabilities to reach out and offer a heping hand' of others for one overwhelmed that is often known and seen so clearly.
I love the form and the way you've written every feeling here.
An excellent poem Dave
|Reviewed by E T Waldron
|Dave, people who have compassionate hearts and are always reaching out to others, always seem to be taken for granted. They extend themselves so much become worn out and frazzled, while those they cared for hardly notice most times. But then, isn't that what Jesus did!?! I hope it will pass soon, and I'll second your prayer,that He will give you an abundance of good health energy and the will to begin again.In the meantime. Take a rest;-) Love, Eileen|

|Is there an answer Are we smart enough to know that we try too much, go too fast, expect too much, and convince ourselves that we must do these things this way - or God, or the authoritiees, or the IRS or the boogey man will get us! To Hell with break-neck living!!! = Bill
|Reviewed by Henry Stevens
|Dave, excellent poem expressing a feeling that is becoming common-at least I read it in others poems, and I feel it myself. I do not know the answer, but you serve yourself well, and other too, by putting it in words. Henry|

|You have needs, too. It's time to attend to you. You've been 'hanging in there' too long. Your body and psyche are screaming for rest and renewal. Find a way. If only one weekend off by yourself in nature. I recently went through this. Let go of the unessentials. Just let go. You will be ready to face it again. Take care, my freind...|
