my craziness by cutting
the lawn with scissors

    This to me screams an important message about mental illness. But there is a lot that i like about this poem. The thing i like the most is the acknowledgment of this person about their own mental health. I always find the first step is the most difficult, so this is a good first step. I also like how there is a dark sense of humor to this as well.

    I think if you can learn to laugh at yourself nothing can ever get you down, and i do feel this person has done that. As i said this sends an important message of mental health. Very well written

    Ben, nicely done. I actually had a neighbor that used to do that...she'd be out there for hours! She was also someone you didn't make eye contact with, she would come unhinged...
