To Discover

More and more ideas are coming to me

More than I can put down on paper

I can't begin to say what is going on

__in the real word,

____there seems to be less

______going on that I would like

Has it been this long since I could be myself

__and not be paranoid?

Long words are meaningless

Though I still have been using them

__thus far

But, with the radio off

And my guitar amp still broken

__and not replaced

____I come across more evidence

______of me not being what my records

________indicate of me

How could I have been that way?

Is it possible that each psychiatric

__hospitalization occurred under

____a different Schizophrenia

______all together?

My theory holds that, first, I was

__Undifferentiated

Then Paranoid

And then Released Schizo-Affective

Still more reading needs to be done

__if I am to find out what

____"Classic" means

How can I have been paranoid

__up 'til age 25

But not after?

Makes no sense

There has to be a reasonable

__explanation for all this!

Soon I will get my records of before I

__ever took medz

Maybe then I will know my real prognosis

Until then I just have to read on

Read on

Read on

I know what craziness is now

But what mine is

Is yet to be discovered
