Tiffany Rose Moczydlowski

Insane Or Enlightened?

They think that my eyes
Are a door into the
Utterly twisted reality
Of a madman.

But they really are a key
To my revolutionary thoughts,
That are neither worthy
Nor capable of comprehending.

They think that
They know ''what's
Wrong with me.''

But there is no possible way
Any of them could understand
Abilities that only I have
Ever truly possessed.

They think that I can
''Delude myself into believing
An imaginary world has
Replaced the reality that
Truly exists.''

But I really am capable
Of bending this ductile
Realm however I please,
As to annihilate any
Possible unhappiness
That its previous version
Couldn't avert or evade.

They think that I'm
Stripping people of the chance
To ever feel joy or life,
That I am a monstrosity.

But I really am preventing
These pitiful beings from
Ever feeling pain again.
They should be grateful,
Consider me their savior.

They think that I'm
Ruthless, a creature who
Lives absent from compassion.

But I really am driven
By it, my actions compelled
By my understanding of my
''Victim's'' unfortunate situations,
Unable to simply escape and destroy
Anything unfavorable with a thought-
As I am able to.

They think that I'm
Operating on my own.
But I really am never alone,
Always accompanied by my
Accomplice, who purrs soothing
Words of encouragement
Into my ear.

They think that I
Am ''getting better, stable.''

But I really am only
Placating those fools,
For my plans are simply
Dormant until they disappear.

Who really is justified,
And who really owns the fault?
Who is the 'moral one'?

It really is all
Just a matter of
Perspective.

    I feel that no one will understand me and they are out to get me but talking and not keeping things in is better, It is hard to find someone you feel safe to talk to about these dark feelings and insane thoughts. But what makes us insane is trying to fix things on your own and keeping from others, Isolation is not the answer but opening up is fear to overcome and when you do will truly help. You have a natural way of words that shocks me and makes me want to read on. You got a gift and should not be hidden.

    This is a really ambitious poem Tiffany and I like the see-saw you have found between Me and Them. You draw my sympathy by writing simply and clearly. I am compelled to answer the question in the title with the word Enlightened. I love the way in this poem you seem to have become your own best friend. Advice beyond that? Become even clearer. Think of your poem as a little boat for the reader that will have to carry him or her out into the wide ocean. You won't be there to plug any holes. The boat has to be shipshape. Thank you for inviting me to read your poetry.
