I'm Tired

I’m tired of hating,
—and tired of baiting

I’m tired of winning,
—in a rained out inning

I’m tired of loving,
—when the love’s not returned

I’m tired of crying,
—tears borrowed and churned

I’m tired of reasons,
—and excuses for treason

I’m tired of answers,
—to questions now censored

I’m tired of forgiving,
—your constant complaining

But I’m most tired of wishing,
—when the hope turns to pain

(Villanova Pennsylvania: June, 2016)
