Spinning Crazily  

The world is spinning crazily
Tumbling madly in the tides

Like a ball caught in the rapids
It's the insanest of all rides

And I am rolling with it
Because I really have no choice

Above the crashing of the waves
I can barely hear my voice

Sometimes chortling out in laughter
Others screaming deep in fear

Plus I know that I am not alone
There's many travelers here

So to keep from drowning
We must grab onto eachother

Holding hands as long we can
Of each soul sister and spirit brother

Because in this loony mix
Of currents flowing strong

We need to listen closely
To the other person's song

Placed here to help one another
Though I really don't get why

I know we sink or swim as one
Together til we die!

Michael "I Choose To Reach Out!" Gallatin

Author Notes

"A Little Crazy" I wrote on 12/6/17 at about 12:45 AM, a crazy time to write anyway. Also a sad though effective way to escape society's crap. At 9:15 PM on the same day this better idea came to me. When I go I plan to go fighting the currents and helping others to do the same!

Yes ...reach out....
On a humanitarian theme we should all reach out and touch somebody's hand in other to make this world a better place.

This is a cool piece of writing... I like the way you communicate... It has an edgy aspect that I like quite a bit... Good work! Caroline xx

Very nicely rhymed. Expresses well the feelings of many of us now.

PS: Couplet 7, line 2 contains a typo.
