Exhausted (Poem)

I didn’t walk your footsteps,

So you say that I don’t understand,

You didn’t walk my footsteps,

So I say you don’t understand,

We argue because we didn’t walk each other’s footsteps.


No, I don’t know your pain,

You also don’t know my pain,

Yet that doesn’t mean we should cause each other pain,

So why do we cause each other pain?

Why can’t we just heal other’s pain?


Truthfully, my walk makes me exhausted,

Too exhausted that I say I had enough of us,

I just want to curl up and cry because I’m exhausted,

I want to cry and not deal with the issues between us,

So can’t you wait until I’m no longer exhausted?
