Instant Writing #11 - Poem by Chad Lilly

On the edge of a mental abyss
peering into the well of souls
seeing no reflection
staring back.

Lacking optimism
in their lies,
I’m labeled:
Unpatriotic,
Insane,
or just plain
Wrong.

Having lived longer
than these years,
my tears make oceans
of deserts….
and sane men
of fools.

I am older than my memories.
