It’s my statement: I am bipolar.
The smile and the frown.
I am on the bipolar two spectrum with long and rapid cycling mixed moods.
In a day, the smile and the frown can swirl around me, shape-shifting, contouring me and my mind.
When I feel lighter, I wonder if it’s happiness or the onset of mania.
Such is my unstable life. Never really grounded. Ideas ripping through; racing ahead of my fingers.
For always on the edge. The mental precipice. Dancing with black holes and novas.
But I am not ashamed, or silenced by it.
I will speak with my voice. Share my story.
Strive for the missing balance.
I am bipolar. If you are, say it out loud, too.
