Favorite Quote:
"Let everything happen to you. Beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final."

-Rainer Maria Rilke


There is no such thing as crazy,
In this world of ignorance,
Everybody's sane,
You just don't know it yet,
These walls you place people in,
Cage in their valued life,
Lock up their souls,
And Seal their mind tight.

You wonder why they don't answer,
Your every given plea,
Or become merrily,
Who you think they ought to be,
You can't tame people,
They can only be trained,
Against their destiny,
Against their will.

So you ask me why I write,
About the words kept unspoken,
The answer is kept within,
The insane,
Retarded,
Schizophrenic,
Autistic,
Minds.


The author's comments:
This is a piece I decided to write about people who have mental disorders. My close friend has a disorder, and I really don't think shes any different than any one else. People judge so easily once they've heard a diagnosis.
