Schizophrenia is difficult to live with not only for self but social acceptance is difficult

 Ticker Tape


Ticker tape across my mind

Hat of foil so they are blind

For they fear me don’t you know

They’re ever watching it’s their show


But you my friend do remain

It’s you and me they’re all insane

They do not see you unknown why

Shhh be careful for the spy’s


Sometimes there are voices in my head

That’s where you are, my best friend

You don’t shun me you don’t run

No understanding from anyone


Haunting voices plaguing me

They enter in my memory

You need to catch them make them go

My tear streaked face it cannot show


Under blankets I will hide

But only is a matter of time

The hands reach up and grab my thighs

To drag me off to Palestine


Seeing friends go hand and hand

Sometimes it makes me feel so sad

It’s not my time I know this now

Where’s the cure, when and how


So on our bench we do sit

Time to talk and reminisce

Where’s the guardian that’s for me

Angel wishes out to sea


But you my friend are ever near

Sometimes you hurt me, I shed tears

But never leave me - never do

I think it’s time we go to school


Carolee Dennis-Woosley

A friend of mine has a son with this sad illness, he is not like the man in this movie he is rather simple. But such a tough life to live people avoid him. They don't understand his peculiarities nor do I. I do feel sorry for him

Reviewed by neerja gandhi 5/18/2012 sure would be tough for schizophernia's to live a healthy normal life..a very touching movie 'a beautiful mind' ...but they are very intelligent persons
