Mental Illness Episode

Mental Illness Episode

A Poem by John F Carver

My friends with a mental illness, we are as one:

Two personalities that had not split

Qualified me for a mental illness; this one:

Schizophrenia and that one in the pit?

A multiple personality with me his alter

I heard the voice of God clear enough

But couldn't keep it separate from my thoughts to falter

And said and claimed some very crazy stuff.

Jesus' thoughts were the Holy Spirit's thought

Mine were not and it's like I had an episode

And they all joined in the fiction everyone bought

And I went crazy and brought them along in that mode.

There is nothing to be done but to start anew

I'm glad to be sane but saddened that happened to you.
