I’m Tired

Today I am so exhausted
that I can not raise my arms
the fatigue inside my body is stuck and sinking
Still trudging forward no matter anyhow
because I promised myself to never give up

Today like every single day of the week
I am working to earn a living
But point that out to rich kids
with their lifestyle shots
and branded commodity bodies
It always leaves them clueless

Today I am so exhausted
that I can not raise my arms
But I sit waiting in hope, whatever remaining
For the day I will join the raging crowd
growl, howl, make a ruckus
and our arms will rise together on their own
