Valley Of Sanity

Valley Of Sanity

A Poem by Maan

I wrote this poem about the people I see, I feel, I judge, every day. And all I get in the end is insanity, known as sanity now.

I’m looking for
in this valley of cogency
in this universe of absurdity
people have cold blood
and have locked hearts,
everyone is trying hard to fake
sometimes smile,
sometimes anger,
rage, sickness, love, mercy
so eager to win this race of pretenders,
I’ll never find my grounds
by following these preposterous rulers,
I’ve no mother wit
I look for every letter
I search for proper words,
in this nonsensical world
I try to produce
an obvious tone,
where people are deaf
smiling at my screams
still I’m here
trying to live
managing to breathe,
give me a little credit
if I’m still alive
keeping my heart clean
keeping myself away
from this world’s righteous path
of hunger and thirst of insanity,
surrounded by thousands of people
crying, smiling, screaming and then laughing,
give me a little credit
If I’m still managing to hold on
waiting for the end
in this valley of sanity
in search of myself

This expression of trying to find yourself and hold on to self amidst all the negativity , absurdity and craziness in this life rings LOUDLY with such truth. A great write!

You found me

haha, jokes aside. It was a very well written poem, I enjoyed your use of clever wording, and I am always a fan of poems involving inner struggle. Very well done.

Very deep meaningful write. The internal struggle

Wow! Very powerful! I absolutely love it and I can say with strong conviction that all of us feel this way at times, but many choose to ignore these emotions.
Keep going and don't ever stop writing!

Not really much to say about what I am or anything about me. Its like I've never find myself in the spheres of something and something not, I always wander somewhere in between them, all I get is the .. more..
