The Man with the Naked Skin

Writing is a way for me to relax and release energy. I express my feelings in songs or poetry.

A Mad Person

the-man-with-the-naked-skin

Introduction

Various records of how God created human beings exists in various cultures and religion. But all agreed that Cod created man perfect, a human being with certain limit. Christians agreed that man is created "a little lower than angels." But that man is "crown with glory and honor" far above the angels. This is because angels were created to render service to both God and man Psalm 8.

Man has free will to make a choice. Eventually, he chose to rebel, evidence of his mad state. Rebels everywhere were regard as mad persons.

Created with a Healthy Mind

It was Juvenal who coin the words:"mens sana in corpore sana." This is always translated a "healthy mind in a healthy body." It was mostly apply in the physical exercise world. This to encouraged us to stretch, exercise, do sporting and physical activities regularly. This to keep the body and mind strong and healthy. The "perspective of insanity can be seen as poor health of the mind, not necessarily of the brain as an organ(although that can effect mental health), but refers to defective processes such as reasoning."

No creative person can created a detective item. A potter will strive to create a perfect pottery. This for master showmanship. But in reality, that hardly happen. Nevertheless, he tried to be his best to excel. God who is perfect did not created a defective being. The wrong chose lands one in trouble.

Influence

It is significant that those we walk, associate, and move with can influence our acts, habit, character, destiny, and life. It is therefore not surprising that when the first created Adam man was friendly with his God, the earth and its entity was perfectly in harmony and paradise. But then the unfortunate happen out of the blues as we would say.

Our friend Adam began to be more intimate with a complete stranger. But the stranger is enemy to God. The stranger or Satan incite Adam to walk against God. Why? Adam would be more independent, whereas Adam knew all things were at his disposal. The dire is cast. Rebellion released. In the corporate world, such incident can result in the lost of job, position, authority, down grading, pay cut, or criminal prosecution.

Compos Mentis

This is soundness of mind. And the opposite of "non compos mentis" which we talk above. Here a wrong reasoning, decision, and act that affect the mind brought adverse effects. I have seen persons lost sanity when their do not reason correctly after a long interval of time.

Mad can be used in a positive sense to denote a person who is " highly unique, passionate, or extreme," and zealous for a good cause. "Paul" cried Festus, "thou art beside thyself, much learning doth made thee mad." Acts.26:24.

"Ideas, beliefs, principles, desires, personal feelings, attitudes, or their proponents' can also be described as mad according to Wikipedia.

Walking Naked

Have you seen persons walking naked? I have time and again. They is no doubt that their are out of their mind and insane. Here I am not referring to swimmers and holiday makers at the beach or water fronts. No reasonable being or person can walk stack naked in the glare of the public without a piece of clothing. Those that put on clothes are dirty and a sight. they eat out of the refuse bin. The Gadara mad man was dirty and violent, so that he had to be put in chain.

He choice to live in the cemetery and in the wilderness, day and night. A thing that no intelligent man can attempt. He was always moving from one dirtiest and unfriendly environment to another Luke 8:26-29. While in the city he had to be chained due to his violent nature. But he break free and depart to the wilderness.

Conclusion

A mad person has not the mentality to make the right decision, He or she is extremely on the wrong side. When Adam cried out that he was naked, and hide himself-a cry for help and healing, His God had to clothed him with some sense. Gen.3:9-10. 21. No real intelligent being can do that to his fellow.

Interesting as the story is, insanity or the mad state is a reality. I did not read psychology in the university or had a full grasp of it to leverage. Otherwise, I would resort to writing an article full circle. Hence, poetry flow in my heart. Thanks for the visit, reading, and commenting.

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on October 12, 2020:

Very interesting, Miebakagh.

Miebakagh Fiberesima (author) from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on September 24, 2020:

Brenda, Adam was not a rellious being. I for one hate to think that way. Actually, Eve was deceived. But Adam delberately sinned when he partake of the knowledge of good and evil. That then is rebellion against the Creator God. Had Adam stay true to himself in rejecting to partake of the evil knowledge, God would have had provide him another woman. Abraham told Isaec God will provide a lamb. Adam has more insight than Abraham, but act below that. Thanks for the visit and thought provocting comment.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on September 24, 2020:

Miebakagh,

This is quite an interesting write.

I dont like to think of Adam as a rebellious one...I believe he simply got mislead by temptation.

It happens to us every day in our lives.

We must have our own principles & stand by them without being swayed.

Great article & poem.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on July 29, 2020:

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on June 26, 2020:

Miebakagh,

That would have been nice. But then I guess we wouldn't know how good we really had it.

Keep writing.

Miebakagh Fiberesima (author) from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on June 25, 2020:

Brenda, thanks for the visit and the read. You wonder how life would be if this had not happen. My answer is that the man would have sinlessly represent us before God. Sickness, old age, choas, death, and other calamitie that is razing the world sholud not be known. Thanks again.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on June 25, 2020:

Your poem describes the deceit adam fell into in the beginning.

I often wonder what our lives would be like if this had not happened.

Madness does exist.

I do believe though that if one walks with God...he has no reason to be ashamed.

Nice write.

Miebakagh Fiberesima (author) from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on June 24, 2020:

Than you. Robert, thank you.

Robert Sacchi on June 24, 2020:

The next step from having many thoughts is getting them in writing. That's a big step and you made it with this article. Great going.

Miebakagh Fiberesima (author) from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on June 23, 2020:

Thank you, Robert. It is common with some writers when the topic is unusual. Thanks agin.

Robert Sacchi on June 23, 2020:

You're welcome. I know the feeling of a lot of thought hitting at once.

Miebakagh Fiberesima (author) from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on June 23, 2020:

Robert, thank you for visiting. While writing the story, many weird things crisis cross my mind. I had to thread on safer, and more sensible ground. Thank you likewise for dropping a brain storming comment.

Robert Sacchi on June 23, 2020:

The poem and surrounding article gives much to think about. I would point out Persian carpet makers deliberatly weave in a flaw in their carpets.

Miebakagh Fiberesima (author) from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on June 22, 2020:

Roberts for the link.

Miebakagh Fiberesima (author) from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on June 20, 2020:

Rajah, thanks for the visit, the read, and the brain storming comment. In the Bible, future king David had to feign mad in other to save his person. You singer guy must be in his shoes. Nevertheless, any real man person must be at the mercy of their God and creator. Thanks again Rajah, friend and enjoy your day.

Rajan Singh Jolly from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on June 19, 2020:

I appreciate your take on madness and mad people. I have certainly seen a popular Indian singer who acted mad or crazy almost all the time but was enormously gifted in the art of playback singing for movies and is counted as one among the top 3 playback singers to date.

Miebakagh Fiberesima (author) from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on June 15, 2020:

Pamela99, thanks for visiting and droping a nice comment. I am glad you like the poem. Enjoy.

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on June 15, 2020:

This is a very good article about madness. I like the explanation that tells us about Adam in the Garden of Eden. Your poem is very good also.

Miebakagh Fiberesima (author) from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on June 15, 2020:

Hi Bill, you're welcomed. Thanks for the visit and the comment.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on June 15, 2020:

A fascinating look inside the mind of madness. Thank you for sharing your writing talent with us all on HP.

Miebakagh Fiberesima (author) from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on June 15, 2020:
