I am tired, so tired …

I am tired, so tired;
of drinking the sweet poison of the false infinite.
I am tired, so tired;
of looking at beautiful images of a false reality.
I am tired, so tired;
of smiling in unspoken words of the false persona.
I am tired, so tired;
of pretending while mingling in the false community.
I am tired, so tired;
of feigning the coveted power of a false strength.
I am tired, so tired;
of nodding in acknowledged conformity to a false joy.
I am tired, so tired;
of acquiescing to the requests of my false identity.
I am tired, so tired;
of wearing masks…
