Bipolar swings


bipolar swings
sometimes gives me wings
to soar and fly

but often when i land
i feel the sinking sand
and trudging go
so depressed - and low

extremes -
i go both ways
regret my zeal
as a result of that
fast spinning mental wheel

do things for which
i feel remorse later
my worried mind
its own squirrel cage debater

God, restore balance
to this little engine of mine
i'd just like to be happy
in a peaceful state of mind

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
