  • Weary

    I'm weary today.
    Weary of living.
    Weary of being weary
    of living.

    It will pass.
    It always does.
    It will return.
    It always does

    One day the cycle
    will be broken.
    Weariness will win.
    I will be weary free.

    I wish i could be around
    to enjoy it.

    Subject matter is heavy - but you've handled it well. To the point. As to the 3rd stanza - if weary wins - wouldn't you then be weary full, not weary free? Perhaps there's hope even now.

      This weariness has been my companion for as long as I can remember. Like an old friend that visis only occasionally we commiserate and then move on. This weariness is part of who I am. When i am no longer around my weariness will disappear with me. I suspect that this weariness is genetic. My weariness and i have passed our companionship along. We hope that the future generations will learn to enjoy the symbiotic and creative relationship that we share. We have a love/hate relationship that weariness and me.

      Does that make any since at all? I think that should be sence???

      Oh yes, I definitely get the sense of such a relationship rhymetime. And I think I did understand you meant death as an end to the weariness. But as to a win for the weariness? - that part is probably influenced for me more in the idea that YOU are the winner in the end. When we come to know one way so very intimately, it's nearly impossible to see any other way - and if it is the relationship with weariness that leads to such beautiful poetry - then I'd say you've found a way to make it work.

    This sounds sad Rhymetime like when weariness wins you'll be free as in dead.

      Yes ma'm. I will carry this weariness with me until death. I figured that out a long time ago. We are a part of each other. we coexist

    Maybe the "weariness" is just the "God" in us forgetting that we are God. A constant process of forgetting and then remembering. Does that make sense rhymetime?

    i think weariness is coincidental with intelligence. - incidentally it's the reason i dont worry about an extra terrestrial attack, any higher intelligence out there is surely older and more weary than us.

    rhymetime I read a book called Conversations with God by Neale Donald Walsh. I highly recommend this book. In the book the voice of God states that he/ she re-creates his/herself when we forget who we are and then remember. I interpret that for my self as my own weariness. When i remember this I am no longer weary. Try the book in case I didn't explain well enough

      Thank you, Bobby
      I have that book and have read some of it. I am easily distracted. I will revisit it now perhaps with a new perspective

    rhymetime. We walk in the same shoes. There is an existential weariness to being a sentient, intelligent creature. Many people find "distractions" of a variety of sorts to deal with weariness. Your poetry is the saving grace.

      My god it will even break your cycle that is adding insult to injury specially when you have to share taners shoes. Still probably more comfortable than Suz-zens heels.
