Rainbows aren’t a crime

If you can’t charge a person with a crime,
What right does the community have
To make them do time?
I’ve done time for suicide,
Time for travel fatigue,
Time for being bullied,
Time for grieving too.
When will people get it.
When will they see.
It’s not okay to drug me
And lock me away without a plea.
What’s my crime?
Charge me with an offence.
Don’t say that’s irrelevant
Because that’s not making sense.
You want to say I’m uninformed
Because I get lost in imagination?
Well just guide me out of it
Don’t give me chemical laceration.
What about when I do make sense
Am I still mentally ill then?
Or is the victim of abuse
Forever condemned?
People get over things,
They jump those hurdles and create.
They don’t just watch ugly porn
And masturbate,
Unless they’re like that see.
Because everyone is an individual
And behaves completely differently.
Some of us fight physically,
Some of us write,
Some of us play music
And some of us visualise,
Others got out
And get drunk at night.
Others stay at home
And eat more than a bite.
Perception is a focus
And in society
It becomes a prism
A faceted myriad
That give a spectrum to humanity.
Forget about one side
And forget the whole thing,
For the prism is transparent
And if you want
You can see everything.
So listen here you bastards,
Don’t make me cry in pain,
Put our prism into prison
And force those drugs again
So my prism becomes all smashed
And won’t create
The rainbows which are innate.
