Hi everyone,

This is a poem I wrote about my bipolar. I know it doesn't have anything to do with deafness, but it's something I decided to write to express the feelings I've kept bottled up inside about my diagnosis.

If Bipolar Were A Person

If bipolar were a person,
I'd punch it until I had no more energy left inside.

If bipolar were a person,
I'd curse it forever until it chose to hide.

If bipolar were a person,
I'd shake it vigorously and ask "Why?!"

If bipolar were a person,
I'd shout "Please have mercy! I can no longer fight."

If bipolar were a person,
I'd cry a thousand tears over what it left behind.

If bipolar were a person,
I'd beg to be given back what was rightfully mine.

If bipolar were a person,
I'd exclaim "No! You will NOT defeat me! This is MY life."

If bipolar were a person,
I'd remind them that no matter what they do to me, I will survive.

*Hugs* You did very well. I can feel a lot pain in that poem, Hear Again, but you know what I also feel? A lot courage, a lot of strength, and a lot of spirit. "No! You will NOT defeat me! This is MY life." You wrote those words and they are the words of a powerful, beautiful person. Now, don't let them go. You can do it girl.

I like your poem, thank you for posting it. I'm new to this forum so I don't know you
very well but, in just reading a few lines from this poem you wrote, I feel like I DO
know you, if that makes any sense! Yes, like other posters have said, I feel the
courage coming from you, in that you're saying you WON'T be defeated. Good
luck to you and I hope you keep writing.

Hear Again, that's a great poem. It really conveys the idea of where the person ends and the bipolar begins, and how fuzzy that line is, and therefore how it makes you feel like your identity is stolen, but at the same time you won't let it steal you.
