Mad

Mad

A Poem by OR

My enemy lies within 
A person they call self
My patience becomes so thin
Like a dwarf seeing an elf

Might be geeky might be mad
To see myself becoming what I'm
Sweep my veins take down the reason I'm sad
And take my brain out of that traffic jam

I'm nothing but obscure
So take me down with a head shot
You have to kill to find the cure
And burn me down to not get what I've got

A lot of rhymes but no sense
That's exactly what you might say
But I'll look at you and say something in my defense
You got to get to the field to know how to play

The things I say, you may not understand 
But don't take it as madness 
For you have to be me to know the laws of my land
And to know the reason of my sadness

I want things to be better 
But ain't that a surreal dream?
Some die from hunger, others getting fatter
Won't that make your ears blow up with steam?

I'll finish up with a quote a men told
That man's name was Gandhi
Be the change you want to see in the world
Look at our planet, ain't that quote handy?

There is playful, poignant rhythm that dances through your flow and form. It both teaches of self and the world... those things we must learn to embrace or fear... We can rise above our situation if we find the courage to do so. Thanks for the bright light!

I liked the last stanza so much. You speak truth. If the world is rotten, what does that makes us? A poem totally worth reflecting over even if some parts were confusing because they were meant to be like that, I liked it!
