crazy scares the masses
fear leads the charge
misunderstanding is the fuel
no need for effort
just crazy

crazy is disturbing
you think it is for you?
try being afflicted
your mind having its own agenda
struggling for control

crazy is a stigma
misconstrued, misapprehended
slowly it devours self-esteem
ravaging confidence and worth
leaving disgrace in their place

crazy is but one word
kooky, nuts, wacky, berserk
many people think these apply
get over it, don’t make a fuss
it’s all in your head mrs. jones

crazy is what crazy does
what’s wrong with you?
get a grip on yourself
anxiety, depression, bipolar and more
crazy one and all

call me crazy – no i decline
i am not my disorders nor are they i
i am a person not a diagnosis
i do what i can to remain that way
all too easy to fall into your judgment

crazy is but your ignorant label
tagging me with deprecation
against which i battle
fighting against your apathy
every day a challenge and a struggle

mental illness are the words
that liberate from crazy
lead to empathy and compassion
comprehension comes calling
stigma ends its rule

  2. Hi,
    You give compassion to the mentally ill. That’s beautiful.
    I know Danny Ray. I met you on his site. Congratulations on being his featured blogger. I was his featured blog or two. Maybe you can check out my site if you need a blogging tip or two. That’s what I write about.
