negativity [poem]

I’m tired of people being ugly to each other
I’m tired of the clever back talk
and the behind your back talk
I’m tired of people laying blame
passing on their own frustrations
with their anger pointed at those unfortunate enough
to be below them
I’m tired of being force fed opinions until I choke
I’m tired of trying to stay positive
when it feels a lot like swimming through half dry concrete
it feels a lot like drowning would be easier
I’m tired of drowning though
my lungs
heavy with the words I’ve held in this too tight chest
burning me from inside
rather than spewing out more negativity
I’m tired
I’m just so fucking tired
