People are tired

Millions of people around the world are tired;
“Why are they tired?” I hear you asking.
“What are they tired of?”
They are tired of assurances
That they can make it big;
Yet, they are not making it big;
They hear this said often;
They read this in books,
In newspapers and others;
They hear it on radio;
They watch television and it is loudly said;
But where does that take them to?
Nowhere;
They aren’t better today than yesterday;
What for are the assurances then?
Can you see why they are tired?
