Eyes Of The Insane

Eyes Of The Insane

Eyes of the insane,

Into abyss they stare,

For a peaceful glare,

Disappointed, hate stares.


Eyes of the insane,

Sees injustice everywhere,

Terrified people enchanting prayers,

Deceiving themselves, wishing wounds could get repaired,

In turn dragging themselves nowhere.


Eyes of the insane,

Watches poverty, epidemic rise,

With war and destruction on a high tide,

As peace slowly fades away with a long stride.


Eyes of the insane,

Tired of watching pain,

Could see future in vain,

Bullets dropping like grain,

Eyes of the insane.

The message is sad but so true and well expressed my friend. I enjoyed reading it and thanks for sharing with me.

We live in a world where there are many great injustices and at times we can lose our sanity and be in a state of despair wondering what we can do to change things.

There are some things in life which are beyond our control and influence, and we can only pray and renew our hopes that injustices are righted and a better world is being created. That takes faith and a lot of strength indeed to maintain our sanity!

I will leave this as a final thought which helps me in times when I might be tempted to lose my mind! Hope this helps you my friend:

'God grant me the serenity

to accept the things I cannot change;

courage to change the things I can;

and wisdom to know the difference.'

Reinhold Niebuhr
