The Fantasies that keep Us Whole (Poem)The Fantasies that keep Us WholeRemastered Version By J.C. SolisSome odd fetish or desireWe wish to sink our bodies inTo forget our atrocious pastAnd therefore find peace withinBut one thing to rememberIs that the cord does run thinFor no Fantasy lasts foreverAnd no true solace comes from sinBecause Fantasy is a lieBut so precious to our joyAs the heart fills with happinessWe wish to continue to enjoyBut one thing to rememberLife does follow no set ployAs it's nature does unravelThat it should not be plainly toyedYet though the matter is justIt's consequence we can't copeBecause the Dark is always lurkingAnd is hard for us to elopeYet within our wavering heartsWe must still maintain our hopesThat one day suffering will endAnd won't fall down a downward slopeThe false realities we delve inOffer no true solace for us to sateThese drawings, games and songsOur creations we view as greatFor art can soothe the soulAnd placate growing hateBut one thing it will not doIs keep us from our fateFor though we try to hide awayWe cannot escape this painThat course through our frail bodiesAnd so drive our minds insaneThe fantasy ahead of usOffers shelter from heavy rainBut then we become addictedAnd from this lie we can't refrainWe delve right in head first to seeTo let our minds start to break freeWe look at worlds, at lives, at loveWe look at what we wish to beWe delve in erotic love and sexWe consume all of this with gleeWe delve right in and don't look twiceWe think we are in ReverieBut once we are ripped awayWe see how the world really isWe see the sun and polluted airWe no longer are in ignorant blissOur lives so full of pain and strifeWe wish to feel fantasy's kissBut this is our real and only lifeFantasy won't get as real as thisWe read our books in page by pageWe listen to all these rhythmic songsWe watch TV to laugh and cryWe watch movies that are quite longWe play our games on TV screensWe feel that nothing can go wrongBut we are escaping to fantasyTo find somewhere we can belongBut this is just a LieWhat is not really thereFor this is our Real livesWhat we now come to bearWe grow so very solemnAt this real and choking airThat we wished to find happinessThe only thing that we now careThe fantasy we delve inDoes nothing except tryTo help us keep from thinkingOf the day in which we dieAs the Fantasy fades awaySo then we begin to cryBecause we lived Life in a dreamA Reality that was a Lie...
The Pain of a Schizophrenic (Poem)The Pain of a Schizophrenic By J.C. SolisThere are simply Times so full of painAnd our lives all seem to have no worthThis anguish that we can't refrainThat curse our lives down upon this EarthThis suffering burns our minds with wrathFrom a mind that will never sateAs we then go down a rotten pathFrom the anxiousness that this all createsAs this suffering mounts to cause uneaseAs this bane forms while we existThis grievance caused by foul diseaseIs far too long for One to listAnd so this illness wracks the mindAnd control, it seems, we won't attainSchizophrenia is Evil and UnkindAs we continue to live in pain...I just can't seem to understandWhy this illness has yet run its courseWhy many, like me, are bound and tiedBy the Will of some invisible forceI just can't seem to know true peaceNo matter how hard it is that I tryAs the Light of Day offers no recourseAnd through the Dark of Night I cryBut when it is I don't feel sadI feel a hollowness deep insideI have lost what it is I amAnd this hollowness I must abideI've lost what I have wanted to beThough I've gained nothing else but painI've lost the will within my lightAnd I lost the Mind that once was saneThere are just so many in this worldWho have lost their own way in LifeWho lost what joy was in their heartsAnd have gained nothing but strifeAnd sometimes they gain more than painA foul mania that can't be controlledAs the monsters of one's dellusionsTry to steal away one's own soulThe Light no longer gives HopeAs this pain continues to grow in sizeShould a Schizophrenic start to shed tearsOne can see the pain right in their eyesAnd The Darkness is not a place to hideFor there are monsters that lurk withinThough, in truth, there's nowhere else to goAnd so we bear these creatures' dinThis is the agony we bearThis is the Life with no compareThere is no solace from this painAnd there is no grace from anywhereBut of all the things I can't bear to seeOf all the things I've gained and lostThe path to my recoveryCame at an incredibly high costFor though therapy can aidFor though medicine can recoupThere is just this numbess deep insideThat seems to run around a loopFor though we still bear our strengthThe road ahead is full of spikesThe Path ahead doesn't radiateWith a guarantee that'd we likeBut though the chance ahead is slimWe still walk forwards in swift beatWe bear our crosses on our backsWe cross the valley with our own feetFor though we are within grave painIt does not stop our march aheadWe walk towards light, with all our mightWe count up all our Hope insteadFor though we have gained ManiaFor though we lost what made our soulsWe search to find our peace of mindWe search to make our spirits wholeFor though we are SchizophrenicAnd though we are within these straightsWe won't stop until we are at last healedWe won't bow down to growing hateAnd when we find this Peace of MindAs we now leave our pasts behindWe'll sigh that now our work is doneAnd in this Hope we shall unwindAnd I Hope that seeing through my LifeYou too will also understandThat there's a chance to beat this strifeWith Hope to guide you by your hands...
