Borderline Poster Child

Who am I, oh, who am I? Just a poser child Borderline? A series of bold contradictions Led on by doctors false predictions Diagnosing all the time... Angry outbursts fill the air, Throwing objects everywhere, They drug me up, because they're lazy It's too much work to help the crazy I hate the pills, but they don't care Take the drugs, and you'll feel better, We'll smoke some bud, and chill together But even if I smoked the weed Surely that's not all I need The lovely high won't last forever I get attatached to everyone, But when they get too close, I run So many arrows in my heart Cupid shoots, but then I part Not phased by all the wrong I've done So put me on more medication, I'll throw in some dedication, But even then it's not enough This emptiness is still too tough All that's left is contemplation

    I agree w/ Rashia-just brilliant! Very deep poem. Meds work for some but not for all-they sure help w/ my ADD-they have changed my life for the better. Hope if this is a true account you will find someone who can truly help you :)

    If this is a description of yourself, it must be very hard for you. Please don't give up. There is help somewhere. If you recognize that you have a problem that is a big start. I have a granddaughter who has bad problems but will not admit it. Love, Joyce

    A twisted mind is hard to unravel, hard to seperate reality from fiction. Excellent piece.

    It sounds like you have something perhaps bi polar. It is going to be a hard life for you. I empathize with you. Many people have problems that are hard to deal with and you describe it well here.

    I have Bipolar as well as many other disorders, including Borderline. Which is what this poem is about. Obviously.
