A child is born with multiple personalities and as he ages his IQ increases from having so many different personalities attached to his mind. As years pass by each personality starts killing each other off inside his head only for him to become one personality. When becoming one personality he starts to lose his mind and is thrown into a mental hospital. Once he figures out how to cope with only one personality they wont let him out of the mental institution because they still think he's crazy so all he wants is to have his multiple personalities back in his mind so he can leave the mental institution.


A pregnancy in turmoil
It feels like demons to a flame
One instant his true form
All personas all obscure
From his birth one of a kind
Many at times shadows behind
The doctors they’ve never seen
So many identities
Through parents eyes
Their perfection
Their creation
Blood relation
As he ages to child form
His IQ’s so strong
Then things turn difficult
Through all the years
Things start to change
Appears to be a war within
This once was boy grown to a man
Doesn’t recognize who he is
Locked away he’s entombed
With his thoughts he’s consumed
Isolation his new home
Never understand rational thoughts
Without his lessons
As he sits there alone
No one but himself
He pleads
Surrounded by this padded room
Through the years in captivity
Normalcy he is on his own
Sanity but still he’s
Sheltered from this world
He’ll never learn
