This piece is to depict a day in the life
of a person with manic depression!!!


One pill to keep me from getting too high,
and one too keep me from flying to low,
my head is really spinning, so much I do not
know.
Lost is my direction, distance, space, and time,
for every time this has happened, I wish I had a dime.
In the darkness, I wander to a destination
I do not know where, sometimes it's all so much, I really just don't care.
Somedays on the edge, I think I'll go insane,
I need something just to pull me back, to ease this terrible pain.
There are times I am sure it is the end,
not unlike feelings you have after losing
your only friend.
It has been here with me 33+ years,
countless are the times, endless are the tears.
I vow I am not a quitter, it isn't all in
vain, I appreciate the life God gave me, so
i'll pick myself up tomorrow, and try it
once again!!!

I know someone else who also shares your plight;
at least you are helping to try to make it right;
I will say a little prayer today, one that's just for you,
keep on keeping on, my prayer is that you do!

my cousin also suffers from manic depression and has expressed these same feelings, but not as eloquently,.....hating the pills she must take...feeling low and high....feeling lost.....Richard I am going to send her a copy as well as her mother....this is a very well written explanation of a dibilatating and devasating disease.....thank you for sharing a very personal part of yourself.........

May your days be filled with lots of sunshine and your nights lit up by golden moonbeams

richard, this is a great work, thanks for sharing a bit of you, each poem offered helps us to understand each poet better. I must say I have had trouble reading your poems, nothing to do with you, just have an old wound on my heart with the name Richard on it ....will keep you in my prayers also, and may your days pass easy for you
