by Dr. Rick McGrath, Ph.D.
With impatient readiness insanity awaits
Loss of reality my mind no longer relates
The path that I walk seems out of sort
I hesitate to inquire for fear of the report.
Lost to the road of mental regression
I’ve heard that it comes with depression
Awake, awake from this stupor’s grip
From a world with no return this trip.
As I look outside from my shaded window
I can see the images of my life’s shadow
As life becomes more and more strange
I seek for answers for my life’s change.
I was here today but I’ll be gone tomorrow
With wonderment and yet of one with sorrow
I walk through the garden in my mind
All that is there I found to be unkind.
Lost amongst the mental rows
Finding life with all their woes
Glorious is the day to be set free
Perched the mocking bird in my tree.
