I am Tired
Without a doubt and without fail
I have thought about this for too long
and I can say simply without offending anyone greatly
that I am tired.
I am tired of the superficiality, of the jokes that scrape the surface
of the repetitive digs at character and zingers that aren’t funny
I am tired of the reminiscence of stories that don’t involve them
and the story telling that isn’t from a fair perspective.
I am tired of the lack of empathy, the excess
unwarranted humiliation, the disconnection of self from words
I am tired of the belief of closeness
while still maintaining soul-crushing banter that brings the sensitive to tears
I’ve lived through too many holidays of it
and I am tired.
