TAKING REIGN

Madness comes
In many forms
I’ve recently
Come to learn

Fallen victim
Self inflicted
Lost wanderer
Innocent bystander

Watching
Hearing
Seeing
Experiencing
Feeling
Living

Something so small
Completely Insignificant
Can be the catalyst
Act as the trigger

And everything
Spirals
Comes undone

Unraveling
Weakening
Crumbling
Breaking

Until you slip
Into numbness
Leading to
Nothingness

And all your
Troubles
Seem to fade

Until you open
Your eyes
Forced to face
Another day

Everything you tried
So hard to suppress

Highlighted
Spotlighted
Illuminated

By the light
Of this new day

Realizing the
Hopelessness
While praying
For change

You can choose
To succumb
Allowing madness
To reign

Or you can
Stand up proud
Shouting aloud
Making it clear

Enough
Is enough…
