I wonder about my sanity,
asking myself if I’m insane
as I look around at cruelty,
at people who relish causing pain
I wonder what the rule is,
how you judge a persons mind
As I look about it comes up short,
when I see reports of this kind.
I’m wondering at my sanity
when I try to catch my breath
as emotions overwhelm me
in reply to seeing painful death
a sense of incomprehension
a basic need to rise above
a place where we allow people
to cause such anguish … Sans love
I wonder about sanity,
IS there anyone sane at all?
maybe there’s something missing
left out as life came to call
when our spirits crossed the barrier
accessing new life here on earth
did we bring the violence with us?
it being so, what are morals worth?
