No sleeping beast

For anyone supporting someone labeled as having OCD, if you are looking to understand how it is, here is how my daughter described it to me…

 

Bound by rules and yet without a say

Unwelcome stranger always at the door

Continue on, begin another day

 

Touch is poison, keep the taint at bay

No-sleeping beast will gnaw you to the core

Bound by the rules and without a say

 

Forbidden places and forbidden ways

Forbidden words so much as start a war

Continue on, begin another day

 

The world is dark and friends will never stay

All you hold dear dust and nothing more’

Bound by the rules and yet without a say

 

But isn’t that what voices always say?

Teeter on the edge of chaos, of furore

Continue on, begin another day

 

Perhaps it will get bored and leave one day

Must these bonds remain forevermore?

Bound by rules and yet without a say

Continue on, begin another day

Thank you, Jessica Ferguson.

Who we are beyond labels is who we be.
