Poem: Tripping in Pain

My name is Candice Ballinger and I am a paranoid schizophrenic who loves to write.


I've lied to the heavens

yelling as I walk behind;

never looking back

my apology accepted,

so why am I so off track?

tripping over my pain

laughing all the way,

rushing through the rain

how can I live through the day?

I'm trapped without a cause

losing sleep,

the insanity trickles in

like waves in the sea.
