I Found My Brain On The Street Corner, But.....

-

I saw my brain on the street corner

I picked it up

Put it back in my head

But I don't think I re-installed it right

Something ain't right

The thoughts are not coming thru correctly

Even my perception of the world

__seems "off"

It makes me wanna lose my mind

__all over again

'Cause what's the point

__in having a mind

____if it ain't even working properly?

But tonight is a beautiful night

Regardless

The stars are shining

My heart is in tip top shape

How i feel is astonishing

And the night is young

Second cup of coffee

And my head ache feels better

Calming my nerves

There is nothing wrong

__with thee outside world

And of that's just my brain

__seeing things this way

____maybe I don't need to fix it

Maybe I don't need to find out

__how to rewire it

____at all

I really liked this part:
"The thoughts are not coming thru correctly
Even my perception of the world
__seems off
It makes me wanna lose my mind
__all over again"

Thank you. It's a reflection of schizophrenia. I wanted to express how having your mind back does not always mean it's gone back to it's former state, perfectly back to normal. Medz didn't solve a lot of things, and recovery did not heal me all the way. Thank you for finding an interest in thee most important lines of this poem.
