Cloaked in My Madness, with Hopes of Reform

crazy (2)



Dress me in my madness

let me wear it like a cloak

or like a second-skin

let me wear it





this madness,

where many

do not dwell

for they fear,

they fear –

to feel too much

to care

to care

to make amends

to grow

to learn

to strive

to help others thrive

I am bathed

in this madness

all my days and nights

and I writhe in its beauty

where hopes reach

across the span of time

I have a dream

I have a dream

Yes, you are not alone

and the only way

that dreams come true

is when you do something

about them.


(c) Sumyanna 2016


Inspired by a quote that stated that caring was akin to madness.  I’d rather be crazy than its opposite.
