Ordinary Madness

Ordinary madness
Every single day
Failure to reality test
Delusion in the way
Wanting with every inch
Of our fragile being
Believing what we need to now
Continuing unseeing.

About Helen

I'm drawn to blogging as a way to share ideas and consider what makes us who we are. Whether it's in our working life or our creativity, expression is a means to connect.

    HI! love this piece! It identifies some things that I have been trying to put into words all day lol You know I just followed your blog because of this post without even knowing that you had just chosen to follow mine! What a coincidence. Now, I am sure that we probably won’t agree on everything but I am willing to accept other views and I want to learn from them. I am a very opinionated person however, if a point is raised that disproves my opinion, I am a person who is willing to change it or aspects of it. I look forward to reading more of your work!

    • Thank you, yes, the synchronicity of wordpress strikes again!!! Loved your blog, by the way and looking forward to reading more of your work. Pleased you like the poem too. 🙂 And thank you so much for the re-blog, very kind of you. Also, I have no problem with people with different opinions to mine either (they often do get me to change my mind on things and see a different perspective)…that’s what makes life interesting!! 🙂
