When a bipolar sufferer takes a positive attitude with manic-depressive bipolar disorder disease...

Bipolar Epiphany

If I don't sleep or choose to not take my
med.'s in spite of my doctor's orders, I hear
sinister voices whispering in my ears;
they unnerve me, because no one's nearby

(when I'm bipolar and failing to comply
with doctor's advice). It's a bitch, I fear,
being committed several times a year
while my whole life's put on total standby.

Life with this disorder is difficult:
and thriving is the ultimate challenge,
a test to surmount and defeat—to exult
in when I overcome it, and not cringe
from this disease as some unjust result
of fate that has me grimly on the fringe.
