Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming - Poem by Randy Johnson

Sometimes I feel like screaming to the top of my lungs because I'm in pain.
I have to take medicine everyday to keep myself from going insane.
I have schizophrenia just like my late uncle did.
He was committed three times when I was a kid.

Unlike my uncle, I always take my medicine.
He always stopped taking it and that was why he was committed again and again.
With each breakdown he had, he got even worse.
Having schizophrenia is like having a curse.

My uncle thought he was God, he was completely out of his head.
I don't want to suffer the same fate, I'd rather be dead.
It's terrible to know that schizophrenia is what I've got.
I guess I was destined to be mentally ill but I hope you're not.
