A Solitary Madness

"The Madhatter"

The social form of Insanity
consists of walking in step
with trends that neither satisfy nor occupy
the restlessness at your core

It's not the drumbeat at of your soul
that's different, love

It's the courage you have to live your Truth
and accept the fiery spark of Madness
that defies the construct of Conformity

Then it becomes quite easy to see
who you really are:

An Individual
blazing boldly
among a crowd of faces
content to thrive on sheer Mimicry.
