My Broken Mind

I am crazy and barking mad
I’m quite insane
This is my sad refrain

At the turn of the millennium
‘Twas a score and three
Since I lost my sanity

Now my days are troubled
Filled with pain and woe
We truly reap what we sow

My thoughts are speeding past
It’s a superluminal race
I can’t keep up the pace

Delusions and hallucinations
Rule the day
I’m left with feeling dismay

What’s it like
To be in a psychotic state
It ain’t great

My mind is not well
Thoughts are disjointed and broken
Am I forsaken

I’ll take my meds
See my psychiatrist and pray
And dream of a better day

Sometimes I get
A dissociative event
At least it’s not permanent

I zone out
And lose all touch with reality
It’s very scary

My depression makes me lie
In bed like a beached whale
Here ends my sad tale
