What is madness?

Madness is descreate.
Like a mouse.
Like a pinhead.
Like a single bolt in the complex machine of the human mind.
Yet without this bolt what would we be?
For you see that madness is creativity.
Madness is love.
Madness is humour.
Madness is divinity and holiness.
And if it wasn't for madness were would we be?

But beware of madness for great evil it can be.
It can tear us apart.
It will divide us from thee.
And divide thee from us.
Who is us?
It will build up are hopes.
And smash them to thinnings.
And despite of this make us restart from beginnings.
A viciouse circle with no winnings.

Alas do not fear it.
As it will come to all beings.
But learn to control it.
And lose unnesesary needings
And you will be mighty.
You will be great.
You shall walk among kings.
And have the world on a plate.

And now maybe I have changed your views on madmen.
And maybe you will never think the same way again.
But what ever you do do not ask me how you control madness.

Because how would I know?
I'm not mad?
