I Dreamed I Was Sane

In my sleep I dream am sane
Then I awake to the same old game
Madness all around
When will happiness be found
Drop another pill,….I feel no pain
In my dreams I win the game
Derang the world I live
Evil spirits hold me down
Bizarre behavior is where am found
Supernatural forces jump up from the ground
Mental Illness the Doc said me
Off to the asylum goes we
Sweet dreams today,…Just a little blue pill away
A mean world drives me mad
So on this earth,…. I`ll always be sad

    This is sad and very thought provoking. I think that most of us can feel this at times, for a very short time. I was glad to read that it is not real for you, that you are a very blessed person and very happy : )

  • Thank you Ann,…I get sad just like any normal person,….LOL,…
    I was just think how it mite be for a person that was insane,…
