Voice of god

 

There is a voice in my head

It is the voice of the gods

Gurgling, giggling, gushing

Thunderous and soothing;

They say I am mad,

What do they know?

Their fully clothed bodies

Belies their naked minds

Roaming about the streets

Of ignorant bliss.

 

I am a habitation of the gods

My will is not mine

I am a vessel chosen

To do their bidding;

They say my mind is broken

They couldn’t be more wrong,

Whoever claims to be in control

Of their minds is insane-

Free will is an illusion

We all do the bidding of the gods

 

I have been to the mountains

Crossed the seas, lived in caves

Dwelt in darkness;

They call it exorcism

I laugh at them,

At their sacrifices and rituals

Skin markings and incantations;

Their frenzy to strive for normality

Settling for mediocrity

Under the guise of sanity.

    This is a very beautiful, nay; magical portrayal of a paranoid schizophrenic, and one with such twisted delusions too! However can something sounding thunderous also be simultaneously soothing?! That bit doesn’t quite add up! Its pretty scatter-brained and puzzling! Till the subject faces up to his demons and admits he’s got a problem that needs solving, then he’s gonna be a gazillion miles away from home literally and figuratively! *rme* LOL

    Totally terrific job you did here Doc! This composition was executed with careful, flawless, surgical precision! So spot on! Then again, you’re a Shrink aren’t you?! Awesomeness becomes you! *laughing*

      there is always wisdom in madness. isnt it madness to conform to mediocrity in the name of sanity?

      1. Yemie says:

        ‘There’s always wisdom in madness you say’?! Well I say ‘in the family of madness, there’s no sanity’! Now I don’t subscribe to the markings and incantations aspect of exorcism and I know one’s either inhabited by the Holy Spirit or an unclean spirit! And as far as those ritualistic acts are concerned, I concur too that they’re mediocre practices but again, how do you explain away the various chaotic sounds the subject finds em….soothing?! *raised eyebrow*
