NYDAS - SANITY
This story has not yet been rated.
This is the madness of all we hold dear
A moment of calm, a word in your ear.
Straight jackets on with the absence of pain
Or emotion to trouble us ever again.
Fear of tomorrow with the memories of past
The present so missed as it passes at last
Numbing the feeling with whiskey and wine
Hoping the sanity comes with our time.
Missing the wonder, the marvel, the joy
Societies falsehood, the misleading ploy
Being acceptable towing the line
Turmoil within but outwardly fine.
What do we fear in the chaos of life?
The feeling of sorrow? The stabbing of knife?
Stiff upper lip keep the maelstrom well hidden
Fearful for passion to surface unbidden.
Desire unwanted and pleasures are stolen
The chaos avoided with words unspoken
Does sanity see us safely to bed
Or insist that we live life alone in our heads?
To keep us in order, no trouble, no more
Outrageous behaviour watch out, keeping score!
Infancy, youth where the madness was shed
We live life so sanely we might just be dead.
