Read Poem: Tired, by Ellen Orris Jørgensen

I’m tired
I’m tired of sleepwalking when I’m awake I’m tired of myself
for putting on a fake smile
and for putting up with things I don’t deserve I’m tired of being lonely
and I’m tired of being afraid of
what my loneliness could do to me

I’m tired
I’m tired of waking up every morning to a society I don’t want to be a part of
knowing I have to help change it
and I wanna fight
I wanna fight so bad
so give me a sword
help me straighten my spine
hold my head up
for I can’t by myself
but I wanna fight
I wanna fight
