They called me ‘mental’, ‘mad’ and ‘trippy’
but they didn’t care to see
to push past their own perceptions and learn about what was bothering me.
Never making the grade, never conforming to normality
I once considered it a curse
now I relise I am free.
I think and I feel
I experience pain
I reflect on my being through its joys and it shame.
I know myself through and through and
in this knowladge comes truth.
Never think your mad, never think your bad
never think your nothing
forgive yourself when you’re sad.
You feel therefore you live
You breathe therefore you are
A universe in a dream
Within dark forests you are a star.
