Unsound Minds

For you to feel as you feel right

Joyful are the days

Over which the sun does shine;

Shocking our winter aches

Happily waving away the memories

Under which we suffer

Agonisingly close to death.


Listen carefully and you may hear

Inside every mind, a little voice

Neither side may make clear

Only confuse your only choice.


Death seems a lively option

As you happily bring the day to an end.

Thought the darkness seeks to set on in

Happy memories you wish to send


Cover up those hurtful thoughts

Obscure as others may seem

Safely in your comfort zone.

Together your own sun can beam

Shining forth on the future scene.
