Sorry I'm sane.

What if sanity is a handicap, a disease that afflicts most of us and in insanity lay our true potential.

What if sanity is merely the incapacity to see beyond the confines of human cognition, to see beyond what is considered normalcy. After all, normalcy is arbitrary. 

Child marriage is madness now, lesbianism was madness then. Someday our definitions of sanity would be inclusive of today's insanity

When madness sets in, is there a way back to hold oneself from it? Do they give in to the madness, unable to bear the pain and monotony sanity comes with? Did they have a voice telling them 'don't dare go there, for, there lies insanity'? Why do I think 'giving in' is beautiful? 


  1. Struggle against conformity! Freedom is an abyss.

  2. "Sanity" like "normalcy" is a myth.

  3. I wish so much that you are back to your writing with this style of prose which I love rather than those short haikuesque , vague lines. You could express yourself beautifully in prose too!

  4. Since you have come up with the theme of sanity/insanity, the Sorrows of Young Werther by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, may be a good further reading and to contemplate on the question.

  5. By 'then' and 'now' we are criminally ignoring the joy of enjoying the vastness of time that history shows us ... nonetheless ... sanity is never relative ... it is as absolute and as concrete as the values that lie on either side of the median of a Gaussian curve ... love the thought. With sanity , if monotony sets in ... ain't it insanity again ... for a sane knows the frugal constancy that exists in our lives ... either the sane had observed not the subtler changes ... or he has turned insane ...
