We are ALL a little CRAZY

You say I'm a little crazy
And I heartily agree….
But this you must be sure of
Crazy's not confined to me!

We are ALL a little crazy
In all minds, a monster or two
A little bit of insanity
Grows and thrives inside of YOU!

The fears that lurk in the shadows
The voiceless terrors of day
The psychosis that lingers
That whispers, "You're not OK!"

Yes, I'm a little crazy
My mind’s lost in the abyss
I'm sure that I’ve seen you there
In that crazy land of bliss!

Yes, I need a happy pill
To get me through my day
At least I know my "crazy"
Is being kept at bay!

Yes, I'm a little crazy
I have a troubled mind
But don't you dare go and tell me
That I'm just one of a kind!

I know that you have issues
For you're human; are you not?
So don't pretend you're "normal"!
At times, YOU have lost the plot.

Yes, I'm a little crazy
Just look at me and sneer
But me thinks your brand of "crazy"
Is the one to really fear!!!!!

    Ha ha, love it! We all have our own brand of crazy. I'm suspicious of the so called normal ones.

    Eileen What a "crazy" and "insane" write. You captured the truth of humanity in a fun and silly way. Everyone has a little craziness inside them that needs to come out. < I am in need of a straightjacket some days > LOL Thanks for the great words on my Inner Kindness poem.

    Wow, Eileen you are a wonderful poet. I could not just stop with one, I read several before I knew it. I can feel the passion that you put into your script. Wonderful poetic language definitely worth the read.

    If someone calls you even a little bit crazy, he will be a lot crazier! Ha-ha! Very fine theme with a lot of truth in it! Enjoyable rhyme Beautifully expressed!

    Thank you, Dr Trifiatis! Very kind of you to support me! Yes, people who suffer from depression and other mental...illnesses do not get the comfort and understanding that they need from those who consider themselves...sane! A paradox for sure! :)
