‘Madness’

MADNESS
Blunt faces with masks torn off

Lagging frail bodies tossed by nagging minds

Roaming in streets or bundled in corners

Vagabonds with no binding bounds to vex

Baffled humans either waffling or brooding

Cursed are they with extreme lunacy

 

Treated as aliens by people claiming sanity

Chained as animals to protect our vanity

Punished often for their impetuous immaturity

Mocked and warned for their untimely infancy

Destined dwellers of a realm of frivolous fancy

We need hearts to understand their fretful frenzy

 

Senseless but still alive with sensuous instincts

Fearless with no thoughts of imminent future

Careless as kids hankering for caring hearts

Aimless with withered whims and fancies

Cheerless with ever dampening depression

Pathless they are strolling in utter darkness

 

Immune we remain with hearts hardened

Unknown fears often creating blockade

Alone are they with no hands to uphold

Withdrawn are they with emotions withheld

Forgone are they forever never to be propelled?

Mistuned chords never to be harmonized?

 

Madness exists even in you and me

Concealed though victimized we remain

In the hasty pursuit for pleasures and treasures

Crazy we turn once obsessed by pomp and power

Remember madness is a possessed state of mind

Beware at any time you too can get conjured!

    So appealing and touching it deserves to be displayed at every hospital housing mentally challenged persons!
