Beauty and the Bipolar Beast by Teresa Smeigh December 2015
Non-fiction Poem/I have Bipolar Disorder
The Bipolar Beast is deep in my brain.
The biggest problem is letting it reign.
It’s guidance isn’t trustworthy at the best of times.
Manic/Depressive could use some rhymes.
The Bipolar Beast shouldn’t be left alone.
For it will do things for which it can’t atone.
The Bipolar Beast can be creative.
Where are ours we sound so plaintive.
You must look for you may find
Writing within a creative mind.
