Mind Over Matter - Poem by John Leroy Maxwell

We're obsessive compulsive, good looking, repulsive

Ever blameful with our faultless sight

We're passive aggressive

We're manic depressive

We're even bipolar, that's right

We're psychotic, neurotic

Free wheeling, robotic

From the day into the night

    Interesting lines John.. As a person with OCD and a past history of being diagnosed with clinical depression, I find this poem a good one... And I agree with you a great extent, 'mental battles' are always very difficult to win since we fight ourselves...

    Thank you for sharing...
