The poets' narrative
The Poets' Narrative shares inspired words by those touched by madness, mania and depression - poems & stories. Today we share a poem, "What Is?".
"What is sanity?"
It's a conversation with others that makes sense,
But not necessarily the private conversations in your head.
Love conversations with other people.
"What is the spirit world?"
Michelle, you know physics.
It is just another place, and other places are teaming with energy and intelligence.
Adopt physics as part of your spirituality.
"Am I known in the spirit world? Well-known?"
Yes Michelle, we bet that you are.
Always wonder a bit about your impact.
It's okay to strive a bit more too.
"What about embracing psychosis? Should I do that?"
No, that’s a dangerous idea.
You will no longer recognize people, or this place you love.
Embrace normal. Embrace home.
"What about my Capgras delusions?"
Small fluctuations in energy cause people to appear as clones or replacements.
That is generally what You are experiencing with Capgras delusions.
Like the different facets of the ones you love brought to life.
"What should I do about dark energy?"
You can always absorb and dissipate dark energy (so it won’t last) if your strong enough.
Everyone has a dark side.
Do not fear dark energy, or entertain it. It exists, but let it not manifest.
"Can time be substituted or warped? Is there an off-grid living space here?"
If so, not for any bad reason, and not for any fearful reason.
But no one should be mis-placed from their home without a good reason.
If so, unplanned, there is an emergency response by guardians of time and place.
"So what is the goal?"
To stay at home, and love home.
To avoid the hospital.
To love the very different facets of life and your brain.

The poets' narrative? Inspired words? Inspired by what?! We can't pin it down but nonetheless madness can't be ruled out for Michelle, and many of the other writers quoted here.
