Title: Inside The Mind of a Bipolar Maniac
Author: Melanie
Date Submitted: 7/20/2015

 
Poem: My mind is like an ocean,
Where every exciting wave
Is swallowed by the motion
Of the tides throughout the day.

My reasoning presses to move me
Toward frequent unattainable goals.
And I debate, ďThat could be easy,
But will it satisfy my soul?Ē

Though the whirling thoughts consume,
I seem to know my place.
Avoiding the urge to presume,
Giving big decisions their space.

Itís the little decisions to watch for,
Overwhelming at every turn.
For those, I rely on my core,
And my fervent desire to learn.

Iíll make it through this manic state,
Of that we can be sure.
And when itís through, if not too late,
My sanity I hope to secure....
