Those Whom the Gods Would Destroy ….

Diotima Sophia

Those whom
The gods
Would destroy
They first drive mad
Through calamity
Or calumny
And experiences they’ve had
Of grief and loss
And life and love
For madness is rooted there
In the mind and heart
In spirit – and soul
When reality’s too much to bear
Insanity provides escape
From the world mundane
Though solace, it often lacks
But apparently
Provides us all
A reason – to turn our backs
For madness is
As madness does
There’s no hoping to understand
For the gods destroy
By making mad
The simple mind of man.
