~ Crazy Is as Crazy Does ~

Crazy is, as crazy does,
You can’t reconcile the “present” with “was”,
And all the past won’t fade away,
Until you live life for today.

Never still, emotion twist,
And thoughtless, kill
To just exist.
So take the spirit and try again,
Live, or die trying,
And finally, when
You’ve found yourself,

The past and all the broken ties
And pointless lies
Won’t even matter.
Because the victory will be in knowing
That crazy can be sane again.

OCD won’t stop until
You face it, each day
Find the will to just
Let it go. And that, my friend,
Is how you’ll know that crazy is
As crazy does.

Just for today…don’t give in.
Just for today. The past is “was”.

About dragonkatet

Regarding the blog name, Dragon’s Dreams ~ The name comes from my love-affairs with both Dragons and Dreams (capital Ds). It’s another extension of who I am, a facet for expression; a place and way to reach other like-minded, creative individuals. I post poetry and images that fascinate or move me, because that’s my favorite way to view the world. I post about things important to me and the world in which we live, try to champion extra important political, societal and environmental issues, etc. Sometimes I wax philosophical, because it’s also a place where I always seem to learn about myself, too, by interacting with some of the brightest minds, souls and hearts out there. It’s all about ‘connection(s)’ and I don’t mean “net-working” with people for personal gain, but rather, the expansion of the 4 L’s: Light, Love, Laughter, Learning.
