January 24, 2010 - Insanity Defined




Insanity Defined

Fools rush in where fools have been before
To repeat yesterday's mistakes
As if they want to be fooled forevermore
And keep the tracks of tears upon their face

They put no lessons learned under their belt
And run quickly back in the door
As if the blow received was never felt
Fools run blindly back for more

They put the weight of the world upon their back
And never ask for a helping hand
And feign surprise in response to an attack
On everything that they command

No different tactic do they take when going back again
And proceed as if they have lost their mind
Expecting the results to change and this time to win
Is this not insanity defined?

I am guilty of this, not asking for a hand.I think we all are.

Everybody does that to an extent. Some learn better, some never do.
