Beautiful Insanity

August 20, 2010
By , North Grafton, MA
The world grew dim
Hands clasped
Loosing strength
Holding on
Clinging by a thread
To save an inch of sanity
Mis-stepping insanity
By a sly misconception
Leaving defeat
Leaving a life
A life barely there
A life barely worth living
And the world grew bright
And hands released
Gaining strength
Letting go
Cutting threads
To swallow the last inch of sanity
Gaily accepting insanity
A lasting accomplishment
A lasting life
A full life of smiles
A life of beautiful insanity.

This poem is very interesting. I was captivated by every line. I was both nodding my head at the sarcastic title 'beautiful insanity,' and thinking that insanity is beautiful in a sense. It is one step closer to the bliss of oblivion. Anyway, well done.
