Of Self and Men


As human beings, not all there,
Pretending always that we care,
We really don't know what we want,
We come and go and always rant,
We experiment with torture, sex,
We don't know if we're great or wrecks,
Psychiatry is no great help,
A Mystery the Human Self.

    Psychiatry is no great help,
    A Mystery the Human Self.

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
