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.
