Drowning in Fluidity

What are these thoughts going through my head
Conversations with an unknown voice
On what path will my body be led?

I feel helpless like I have no choice
I can't distinguish reality
Conversations with an unknown voice

With pills I lose creativity
Which way is better I do not know
I can't distinguish reality

I am vibrating from head to toe
Hanging on with a tentative grip
Which way is better I do not know

My mind like fluid, starting to slip
Is this how it feels to go insane?
Hanging on with a tentative grip

I can't see the light I'm lost in pain
Is this how it feels to go insane?
What are these thoughts going through my head
On what path will my body be led?

I wrote this to bring light to people in our society who suffer from  Schizoprinia. 
I volunteer with homeless people and some refuse treatment because they 
find the numbness worse than the affliction.  A good movie that deals with
this topic is "A Beautiful Mind"

    I love this piece , Richard. Great write. It is a heartbreaking thing to watch someone like that, , its all just a hair line difference , I feel. And the movie 'A Beautiful Mind ' is one of my favorites. There's a book on that too. The life of a mathematician in illusions....thanks for sharing....

    I fully agree David. Unfortunately people are afraid to talk about it. So many suffer in silence.
