girl- interrupted

Do you remember 
in Girl Interrupted
when Susanna erupted
and said she didn't know 
whether or not she was mad
well that bit made me sort of sad
and her troubled journal entries
 too, her wry observations
made me question 
all situations
 that I put down in words
were they real,
or were they like hers
unrelated, fabricated, desecrated,
Not sure why I was so captivated
by her, 
by the troubled writer girl- 
Hmm I don't know,
but I've come to know this; 
I am bound to my book, 
but my book is not me 
you see, humankind we
are not the sum 
of the worst thing
we've ever done.
