Mentally Uncapable - Poem by Deshawn Johnson

My insanity
is unexplanatory of why I think so frantically.
I feel so crazy.
Only One can save me.
The cruel world is out to transform my identity.
I am not normal mentally.
There's no place for a young male
who is so fragile and frail.
I speak of the truth
whether it's proper or uncouth.
I've got everything to lose.
I do what I choose.
My decisions are rational.
I refuse to act bashful.
My methods are those of a taboo.
Yeah, I'm a bad dude.

My mind is on so many different levels of grain.
The antonym calls me insane
because of the contents of my brain.
I belong in an asylum because I have no shame.
All I want to do is gain and maintain.
I do not act tame.
I am not mentally capable because I am not the same.
I am not normal because I use my pain
for artistic acclaim and fame.
Most of the regulars do not understand
that I am all that I can
and want to increase my life span.
Yeah, I'm a bad man.
