Bipolar The Beautiful

Bipolar winds I feel blowing, my heart is beating and its snowing.

The weather is unstable like my disorder , though I’m able.

To feel like I’m floating away, my mind feels this is no game.

Medication is a treat, my mind thinks it’s neat. The stability I found, leads to places unbound.

Depression gone, and mania a float, I feel I can ride this unstable boat.

Waves are crashing on the rocks in the ocean, I’m ready to fall into this emotion.

Lightening is cracking in the sky, I see the beauty through my eyes.

Sunset is approaching the pinks and blues, I’m feeling in a good mood.

For a moment then its past, the sky is a mast!

Bipolar disorder I see you there, my teeth cringe, but I’m floating in mid air.

To high to notice my mania has approached, there is a moment I am encroached.

Onto my meds I see no doubt, my ability to feel happy with every bout.

To the ends of the earth I see, the beauty that is me.

    I write poetry too, this is awesome. The 3 favorites of mine are “vibrancy fleeting” “Smoke and Dreams” and “beautiful you” if you wanted to see and not have to filter all my ramblings. Be well, jason

Work hard for what you want because it won't come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive.

Change your thoughts and you change your world.
