Sanity is Insane

I sat and stared.

Tick Tock, Tick Tock,

the hour hand is stuck.

slowly walking they will come.

unstopping,

pacing with dismay,

trying to stand still.

the world walks by.

steadying my nerves,

fire burning in the walls,

deadly to the furthest point,

spoken to a dark world.

Unhinged,

The people walk,

Blind to the world,

Simply waking,

Simply living.

Unraveling,

spilling through the mind,

unhinging, unstable, unbalancing sanity,

the world has sanity, which is insane,

and the hour starts again,

Tick Tock, Tick Tock,

so I sat and laughed.

I wrote this poem expressing my wounder at what true sanity really is.  This also sets in with weather or not the human mind is really sane at all or if its insanity thats insane.
