We all have a rock to which we cling to
Worn out finger tips and bitter tears
From holding on to our rock of fears.
Insanity is a room we enter with an open mind
The door is closed so freely.
The outstretched arms and finger tips
Are just the friends that remember
And linger long enough in the mind
For that mental surrender.
I once stood in a streetlight
I knew that you were there
I wanted you so much
That I never had a care.

Mental surrender...curse or blessing? That is the question. The power of the mind should never be underestimated...fear can be a good or bad thing (very powerful), hopefully the mind is healthy enough to know which is which and chooses the one that is better for the individual at that time. Fine work John.

Wow...  Sometimes we throw away the rocks that keeps up upright out of fear.  We should rather hold on to those rocks. 
This is really an amazing write.
