Bipolar My own war!
Impossible to stop the waves in the sea
Just as itís impossible to love me
Destroyed identity,
can you imagine living with me?
Someone insecure
Driven to the depths of defeat
I can be so dam calm honey
But dayís like today I feel like a bomb
That any minute now the ticking will stop
And I will explode
Gone is the silence
Just words of anger, screaming, loosely 
Can you handle someone like me?
This bipolar, urgh
Gone are the days of sanity
Just non-stop nonsense
Circling through my mind
God dammit honey
I have so much love to give
And I can smile at something so precious
Like a bee circling colourful flowers 
Sometimes I feel like giving in
Like handcuff me, guide me, throw me into a corner of a room
And other days I can be so full of inspiration
And longing for a hand to guide me through my own war
I am not a bad person, honestly
You do believe me, donít you?

Author's Notes:
I am not a bad person, honestly, I am not.

I think when you hear nothing but the negative about yourself.

And then you discovered that you have a special call and a gift.

Your not the problem but the world that can't accept you is.

But I see a soft layer under your thick skin when you share.

You are so loved even from God above

 because of faith running in your veins.

I know what it's like to suffer from mental illness. I have Schizophrenia. And I believe you when you say that you're not a bad person. Great poem.

You are not bad person at all Leah. Please, do not say that. I know how it happens in Bi-polar disorder as life becomes so tough. Still, you are surviving and this aspect of yours really goes to show your strength. Honestly, I really love this poem of yours.

Dear Mitzee you don't have to tell me you're not a bad person.  because I know you are a wonderful person.  I have had bi-polar disease my whole life.  It's rough, but even though there are lot of bad times, I think it makes you deeper and better and real.  This is a fantastic poem.  Keep writing, you're good!  --David  PS I love how you say Honey all the time delightful.

My heart goes out to you Leah, this brought some tears to my eyes. But I still believe that each person has someone out there that they were meant to be with and you are no exception. The advances that have been made with regard to bi-polar disorder have drastically changed the way it is perceived. Where there is hope, love and respect, there are no bounds to stay in when it comes to loving or being loved.    Hugs,    Henry

I believe you are a good and lovable person Leah. Your poem is well expressed and very moving to the reader. I hope that you come to truly believe within yourself, that you are good and worthy of love. Hugs and positive vibes your way. Brian

This brought tears to my eyes Leah. Yes, someone can love a person suffering from bi-polar disorder.

Someone can live with a bi-polar partner/spouse and help them through the highest highs to the lowest lows.

Your poem is heart wrenching and very well expressed.
