A verse about Mental Illness" I am the one"
Yes I am the one....... look at me sitting here
as I stare vacantly one moment
and turn instantly to the evil glare
the next moment ......I am the one
the one on the park bench you pretend to unknow ?
the one with a vacant and child like stare
yes look at my mismatched socks and torn
I am the one you will never understand as you
quickly turn away
wondering .....did I see you do that?
did I notice as you safely ignored me ?
I am the one that fiddles with my own
hands in simple fascination
I am the one that rants away on the sidewalk you
dare not pass
Go ahead ....pass to the other side of the
street without one kind word
do you think I don't notice you
as in furtive glances you judge me?
I am the one that is responsible for all evil
Yes blame me ......isn't that the easy way out?
isn't that all you need to do ?
without lifting a finger
Isn't It me that gives you all you need to
judge yourself kindly
isn't it me you should thank too?
you might have to look within
