Voices in my head

I see things in my dreams Aliens then screams Government, terrorists, spies Ghosts, ghouls, monsters, lies They are coming in my sleep I can’t scream, not a peep Fireants in my brain My voices make it plain Life isn’t as it seems I ain’t gonna lie I got problems Don’t deny Should be locked up Outta my mind I know I’m crazy But maybe that’s just me Don’t judge me by the outside See inside I’m terrified Locked my heart threw away the key Locked it up so they can’t see Its breaking loose Can’t set it free Can’t keep it close Can’t let it be I try to find my sanity But somehow that’s just not me My brain thinks differently I ain’t gonna lie I got problems Don’t deny Should be locked up Outta my mind I know I’m crazy But maybe that’s just me Don’t judge me by the outside See inside I’m terrified Others see a different world Without the fear of dreams unfurled Broken hearts, shattered screams My insanity becomes a reality That only I can see My reality is the insanity Deep inside of me Until I set it free I will never see with clarity I ain’t gonna lie I got problems Don’t deny Should be locked up Outta my mind I know I’m crazy But maybe that’s just me Don’t judge me by the outside See inside I’m terrified I just gotta set it free I just gotta be me The world wants me to hide They just gotta realize That I am truly crazy And really that’s just me I am finally set free To find my sanity In insanity I ain’t gonna lie I got problems Don’t deny Should be locked up Outta my mind I know I’m crazy And I know that’s just me Don’t judge me by the outside See inside I’m finally alive

Heather, Quite a contrast with my Jacuzzi. Yours is not a long poem but a very absorbing. Thank you for this delight.

Hi Heather. I am new to PoetrySoup. I was wandering around the site when I came across your spectacular poem. You express with such passion the struggle thinkers face in maintaining sanity. Because sanity is defined by the Average. And you are anything but Average. So the struggle goes on. But there is hope in the final line of your poem. Accept your "insanity". Understand that you are not Average. And you will "See inside I'm finally alive". Well put. Drop by sometime. Peace..Sam

I think in life, if we're lucky enough. We come to a place within ourselves where we can accept ourselves. Love your insightful perspective Heather. Peace. :)

I, as many others can relate to the feeling you describe in this wonderful poem. Not only does it convey a message, it flows with beat and measure. All of the above put together makes for a very enjoyable, and meaningful work of art. Thanks for sharing your talent.

Introspection is a difficult thing to do. You have described everything here very clearly.
