Soundness Of Mind
(11/21/2020)


sanity

so many
definitions

marginal
descriptions

but basically
majority rules

whatever
contributes
to society’s
vision
of the greater
good

is good

if an individual
does not join
in that ideal

then
criminality

insanity

personally
saneness seems
more a product
of meshing
with one’s natural
inclinations

we lapse
into craziness
when we buck
our true
natures

when we
refuse
to recognize
our inherent
strengths

our inner
limitations

our soulful
deviations

those constructs
constituting
the only reality
in which
we can exist

unfortunately
others
cannot see
our friendly
confines

they expect
from us
the typical
neurotic
normal

so when
we deviate

when we
initiate

we are
suspect

but despite
any external
prognosis
of our condition

we shall
remain content
within our
contentions

happily
walking
our own
paths

smiling
sanely
at the end
of each
day
