Rewrote “Dizzy”

Here is the new version of this poem.

Whirlwind Thoughts!

By Teresa Smeigh April 2019


My mind is in a whirlwind,

Often leaving me chagrined.


Bipolar is one part of my problem.

My thoughts, I can’t suppress them.


Do this, please do not do that!

What am I, a dimwitted doormat?


I need some help regrouping.

I hate this negative thinking.


Positive thinking that’s the way,

Don’t let others lead you astray.


One day I am going to be free.

Barring any troubles, I can’t foresee.


It takes time and determination.

Planned, not just adaptation.



Advocate for mental health and invisible illnesses, also a devout Christian

Author – (this blog contains my old work mostly although occasionally I do add something new here), new work is mainly on this blog
