Wearing the Mask of Sanity

Life explained through the lens of madness.

My life is no different than countless others who hide behind a façade of normalcy.

This is my world, and I accepted it a long time ago.

Memory could be the death of all that’s sane in me if not for the foundation I’m rooted in.

It’s how I exist on earth, and how I allow you to exist as well.

We have the audacity to mock the ones who show the crazy.

It’s all meaningless.

Instead, you must lose them before you understand that although breathing surely is a symptom of life, life is nothing more than a symptom of death.

Sanity is just a mask we wear to keep from facing both.

I write about recovery, life, grief, personal responsibility, social issues, and overcoming. Email: allison@moodyoops.com, Blog: https://moodyoops.com/
