Of-Course, I'm insane

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 34; the thirty-fourth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is "Of-Course, I'm insane"

Of course, I'm insane.
When I expect that everybody is good to me,
And when I know that world is driven by selfish motives of human greed.
When I expect that everybody will follow basic rules of living,
And when I know that there are many idiots and impractical people around…

 Of course, I'm insane
When I think about you every time,
And when I know that you are not going to be with me.
When I wait for your message at every instant
And when I know that it is not going to beep…

Of course, I'm insane.
When I know that man gets out of what he does and thinks,
Even then I sometimes ask to God for results.
When I know that self believe is important for anything to happen,
Even then I sometimes bow to God out of fear of failure.

Of course, I'm insane.
 When I expect small things from friends,
And when I know that most of the friends are busy in their own life
When I feel a person is a friend, if s/he smiles
And when I know that most smiles are just veils

Of course, I'm insane.
When I sometimes think of myself as the highly capable being,
And the next instant fears about trivial problems of life.
When I wait impatiently for the good things to happen to me
And when I know the positive probable outcome....

Of course, I'm insane.
When I know all the above facts
And still do the same insane things.....
Of course, I'm insane.
Of course, I'm insane.
And the funny thing is, 
I sometimes enjoy being insane....

I like the way you presented the 'insane' side of every experience, of lover, of friends and of a person in a problem. The ending is beautiful, in this sane world, we all love to be little insane. But on other thought, 'Is the world sane?' Or Sanity is a myth.

thanks for the lovely comment
I think there is a catch here, the insanity in the sane world, but is the world sane....i think whatever one feels sane is sane and the other one insane...whatever one feels sane at the moment may seem to be insane to him in future...sanity-insanity is not a myth, just a view point of a person at a particular frame of mind...that is what i feel :) :)
