Too long have these shoulder held the world

too many battles have these weary eyes seen

LET ME REST! I scream out to heaven

without even knowing what the words mean

Too many scars adorn my calloused skin

each proof of my survival, but to what length

must I go, what more must I endure

to show that I am worthy, to prove my strength

Too many sleepless nights, and restless days

what more can possibly be required

I have grown so weary, Father

I am strong, but I am tired
