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
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
