Mental Health

A Poem by Mark Anthony Games (Human Voice)

Shall I mourn for the loss of my body
For it exists beyond my control now
I am nothing but a passenger
Shall I rejoice in the diminished responsibility
For I will always know the actions were not mine
I am the criminal and the crime yet never the witness
White water rapids of confusion refuse to be grasped or held
Rapid painful strokes of sanity flash from the abyss
When your life is a flickering light bulb

Mmm what a deliciously dark and enlightening poem (if that makes sense lol) this is!

"I am the criminal and the crime yet never the witness" (aren't we all!)

"...When your life is a flickering light bulb" (what a splendid line!)

Oh, I enjoyed this greatly. Aren't we all a little mental, no matter how 'sane' we may think we are?
