I Will Never Be an Underdog

I will never be an underdog.

I am a mother and an overcoat,

loving, protecting and helping others.

I will never be an underdog,

as I have bipolar disorder,

causing me to overachieve,

some days just to get out of bed

and accomplish the simplest of tasks.

I will never be an underdog,

as I am a strong survivor,

becoming victorious over bipolar disorder.

Never look at people with mental illness as underdogs,

for each day we win and conquer battles within.

We are survivors and heroes of our own lives.
