Tired Eyes

She could feel her eyes falling heavy
It’s unlike the one she had in earlier years
Each year, it gets more tired
And it’s not due to lack of sleep
She could feel her age creeping up
Mixing all emotions in one

Sometimes she feels too old for her age
But too young to be feeling so old
Despite it all, she shows up all smiling
Praying to win another day
