Mad

As the Hatter...

As the Hare...

As chaotic dervish whirling 'round.

As a child, fighting to break free.

 

Madness they say.

Mad they call us.

Mad they stay, at the dreamers.

Madness it is my way.

 

Ideas swirling, twirling.

Tilting left, listing right.

A path only I know,

Hidden from the others' sight.

 

Like the Hatter...

Like the Hare...

Brilliance in the chaos.

Knowledge in the maze.

 

Words of whimsy.

Words and riddles.

Poems and rhymes.

Stories echoing down through time.

 

Mad they call those, who dare to dream.

Mad they call those, who dare to stand.

Mad they call those, who dare to try.

Mad they call those, who have learned to fly.

 

Mad I am, a dreamer, torn.

Mad I am, barriers shattered.

Mad I am, a butterfly soaring,

Whirling, waltzing, dancing with the storm.

'Of wings and words and dancing milkweed seeds...'

Re: Mad

I like the flow. And the Alice in Wonderland reference. It's also very honest.

 

One question:

 

Madness they say.

Mad they call us.

Mad they stay, at the dreamers. Is it stay or say. I thought it could go both ways. Could be the way I

Madness it is my way.                                                                                                       read it.
