Does your life teeter between pleasure and pain?
Do you have memories your mind cannot tame?
Does your depression get so low and so deep,
that it seems your very soul it will reap?
Leaving you where you have no direction to go.
Wishing for some relief to break through and show.
Trust me I know pretty much how you've felt
Because being Bipolar were the cards I was dealt.
I also live in a world that is so hard at times
yet I find relief when I talk to those with like minds.
That and my poetry plus the medication I take.
Helps me stay balanced and gives my mind a break.
