A Quiet Reality

image

Photographer: Diamond Luisant

In neither giant nor elf’s disguise,
the man in the mirror hopes to be,
humble as his prize being free,

From all those destructive
stigmatic psychiatric patient lies,

Standing firmly on each feet,
as free as the birds in the tree.

What more can a man hope for,
coping with
fetters of mental illness,
stress and anxiety;

Except peace,
calm and stillness,
          a quiet reality.

Life is strange
I was strange and I was alive

I was once observed as a black sheep
garbed in rainbow hippy clothing

To most of those other sheep roving
I was then resolute and self assured
Determined  to be more like those around me
It’s taken me years to change my mind

Now that I have succeeded in doing so
I am desperate to have that fifty four year old
unyielding mind back
self confidence is now what I really lack

The straw that broke the camel’s back
Is that I now go to extremes much easier

Am I normal now and really just a stranger to myself?
