Mental Wards in the Mind's Eye

many called it crazy home on bull street
house of fools running wild
calling those visiting family and friends

crying for dead children, unborn
remembering ones wronged
showed no mercy
begging death, fleeting
as winds of blustery days

time of essence
today, here for taking
etch differences life of others
make name for self
one favorable, those mattered, because
pleasing everyone, impossible
please self, knowing
good conscience
makes heart joyous
