I tried to catch the wind

But instead the wind caught me,

It raised me to great heights before

I landed in a tree.


I tried to catch my shadow

But I failed at all my chances,

For my shadow is quite eloquent

At eluding my advances.


I tried to catch a falling star

But the closer it drew near,

I backed away out of its path

Overcome by awesome fear.


I tried to catch the fairy

Who came to get my tooth,

But instead I learned I wasn't a

Conniving enough sleuth.


I tried to catch a quaint snowflake

But instead I caught the flu,

Now confined to my bed

For a week or perhaps two.


I tired to “catch you later”

      But got badly misdirected.

Called another friend instead

      You say you were rejected.


So I throw in the quitter's towel,

Don't want to catch a thing.

'Cause I'm tired of always trying

And never catching anything.

Reviewed by Andre Bendavi ben-YEHU 6/20/2005

A depicting of a mind that didn´t find the path of materialization of dreams. "Tired of Trying" shows the picture of many that lack will power of perseverance. Its delivers a profound message to the reader, and stimulates willingness to reverse the story.

"Tired of Trying" strikes the dynamo of decison. It is an inspiring composition of poetic magnificence.
