Dressed in dreary, dark, depression clothing for too long.
Time to change my wardrobe, persevere and be strong.
My bipolar depression clothing has become tattered and torn,
an ugly outfit that never fit me, but for many years I have worn.
Depression caused sadness, emptiness and loneliness. I was forlorn .
Survived another depression episode. Praise God. I have been reborn.
Dug myself out of my grave,
fought hard, had to be brave
Beat my depression battle and climbed up above,
rejoicing, as once again, I feel happiness and love.
Finally reached my other mood pole and am hypomanic,
changing between depression and mania is never automatic,
but the difference is life-changing, life-saving, gigantic,
absolutely amazing, miraculous, and beyond fantastic.
I pray I will stay healthy and well,
preferably forever, only time will tell.
I pray someday there will be a cure,
keep fighting, only God knows for sure.
