Those Brilliant Brains by Deborah Ray
I will seek as many of my people
as my true passion will allow
to unlock some of the mysteries
that can’t communicate to be let out.
Lying deep inside those brilliant brains
that have so much to say
is a desperate plea for normality
and for the depression to go away.
It’s hard to feel the blessing of survival
when your brain doesn’t work anymore
a mind gets so distracted
setting goals is a mighty hard chore.
Compounded with mental illness
your mind doesn’t work like it did before
you try to think of the positives
your brain is likely to ignore.
People are judgmental, callous and mis-informed
they have no idea of what these brains go through
so don’t expect anyone to get better
when they say they’re doing the best that they can do.
Don’t try to tell them they can stop this intrusion
that negativity can be managed and be controlled
just pray you’ll never discover
your brilliant brain turned just like those!
