Tired of being pushed around,
Because I cared for people.
Tired of being neglected,
Because I didn’t want to get in the way.
I’m tired of having to shut myself up,
Because you won’t accept me otherwise.
I’m tired of all these ups and downs,
Just pick a goddamn direction.
Tired of being invisible,
Because my problems seem dismissible.
Tired of being fluid,
Just going along with everything.
Tired of needing to be unique,
When there’s actually nothing wrong with being common.
Tired of craving affection,
To only feel relevant.
And I’m tired of being quiet,
When I feel most irrelevant.
