Brilliance Behind Bars

Beauty Behind Bars2

Genius in a psychotically obsessive brain
Noble soul in a troubled mind

Intellectual puissance in a
Prison of delusion

Thoughts of abyssal depth
Stunning intricacy
Endless horizon of the mind

Yet, every move
A challenge
A near impossibility

Voices speak of punishment
Contamination is omnipresent
Death lures in the tiniest particle
Belief is above proof

Friedrich Nietsche
(My son’s favorite philosopher):
A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum
shows that faith does not prove anything.

He could but he can not
He does not want to but he has to

Brilliance meets helplessness
Helplessness builds aggression
Together they fight back

He shouts

But not for long

They never really go away.
