Treasure Island

rachel kathleen moses


crazy


In a whirlwind of numbness,
there is nothing but madness

this pen is my release,
the ink it is my blood
everything I see and everything I do
haunts my life, my everyday
it tells me I am crazy

Crazy am I,
a young girl who acts on impulse,
who listens to her feelings as thought they are a parent,
or rather a best friend

Crazy am I,
an old woman, who spent her life alone
searching for 'the one'
but finding no one

Crazy am I,
a young boy, who fights for justice
there are no greater oxymorons,
but he does what he is told

Crazy am I,
the Lesbian, confused as what to feel
scared of the reaction of her loved ones,
she hides in shame

Crazy am I,
the killer, who's so fed up with life,
he wishes to take another,
perhaps his beloved wife?

Crazy am I,
the teacher, who devotes his life
to a robot of audiences,
faith is in his nature

Crazy am I,
the poet, who writes these very words
she spends her days deep in thought,
but seems to have no cares

Crazy are we,
these people, who have felt all too much
all here for different reasons, none matter.
the fact remains that we are,
all indeed
crazy.

    A philosophical treatment of an idea who some are convinced whose time has come. Perhaps it has. If so, it will need more common acceptance in society. That is what gives this poem its value.

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
