Sanity And Paperwork - Poem by Paula Puddephatt

This is the path I walk but did not choose.
I feel my pain in different shades and hues.
Still seeking a new substance to abuse.

My sanity, like paperwork, I lose.
Feel judged by smug church people in their pews,
who can’t see past their narrow-minded views.

I’m over-sensitive. You touch – I bruise.
This is the path I walk but did not choose.
Both sanity and paperwork, I regularly lose.
