I am tired!

I am tired!
Of fighting to be seen, when I am invisible
Of fighting to be loved, when I am lonely
Of fighting to be recognized, when I am overlooked
Of fighting to be important, when I am undervalued
Of fighting to be enough, when I am inadequate
Of fighting to be appreciated, when I don’t matter
Of trying to explain, when nobody understands!
Of living a sad life!
