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
