Sanity...

is it over-rated?
i'm trying very hard to stay sane today...
i think, all things considered, i really am quite sane:
for me!

sometimes i just need to distract myself:
a good book;
a trashy tv drama;
baking a cake;
shopping;
or knitting.

more often than not though it's the written word that distracts me, allowing me to wander into a fictional, reflective and peaceful world where I can choose to be sane or not... just for a moment, before returning to reality and choosing serenity.



Voices

Voices in my head,
Chanting, "Kisses. Bread.
Prove yourself. Fight. Shove.
Learn. Earn. Look for love."

Drown a lesser voice,
Silent now of choice:
"Breathe in peace, and be
Still, for once, like me."
