Full Circle

insanity

As a young and growing childĀ 
Mental seeds were sown
He’s medicated to be mild
Side effects unknown

 

Said to be unmanageable
Too wild to control
Prescriptions all too viable
No care for future toll

 

Now this child gentle, meek
Falls victim to their taunts
Mistake this boy as being weak
He flees to sheltered haunts

 

Witness of horrendous things
Of which he will not speak
How can family, terror bring
His loved ones, havoc wreak

 

He finds his shelter safe and warm
He climbs inside his mind
His sanctuary from the storm
His thoughts help time unwind

 

As he grows and comes of age
He grows tired of his pills
Things to do and wars to wage
Newfound battle of the wills

 

He’s grown and reached maturity
After years mis-diagnosed
A dangerous threat to humanity
For no longer is he dosed

 

Now his head is free to think
Unclouded by that haze of mellow
To evil thoughts his focus sinks
For vengeance new voices bellow

 

His problem is with reality
Cruel twisting of his fate
It is Preying on his sanity
Ever filling him with hate

 

All those years of passive sedation
The malice that was endured
Now he realizes with exultation
His revenge can be secured

 

Unnoticeable from the outside
The rage within his head
A wicked smile, eyes open wide
The madman kills to see you dead

 

Horrific spree of death and hate
This killer caught and sent away
Caged like an animal to meet his fate
Asylum his home ’til end of days.

 

Far too dangerous to himself and the rest
He must be tranquilized, to take away the wild
A remedy concocted, one that seems the best
The same one it happens, he was given as a child

 

The anger and fury lose their grip on his mind
The memories of his childhood friend held close
Taken back to better days, now easier to find
Then five words bring clarity, “it’s time…..increase the dose”

 

Life and death cross paths as they wind
And all things are bound to repeat
Locked away in cage and mind
The circle is complete
