"Happiness, where are you? You were here,
but now you're gone." You say this so often
that you feel you can't go on.
You cry yourself to sleep at night. Often
you feel ill. It's okay to cry, don't be
afraid of the way you feel.
There before you is a gun, so you sit and
contemplate. Maybe you should do it. Maybe
it's best that you leave this place.
Now you may be wondering who in this story
this may be. I am speaking of myself...yes,
this poem is about me.
You see, I was so lonely. So often I felt
depressed. I didn't care about life, because
mine was all a mess.
I used to be happy one moment, and then suddenly
wish life was over. I didn't know my condition
then; it was called, bi-polar.
I use to hear these voices...voices in my head.
Doctors wanted to help me, but no was all I said.
You see I was stubborn. I didn't want any help.
I knew I'd defeat this monster, so I tried to do

care. Please continue reading, for I'm taking you
I started reading Scripture, believing everything

One day I became determined. I took control of
life. Said to myself, "I'll win this battle. Think
I'll be alright."
With faith I moved the mountains of depression. I
took back my life. I began to get stronger, it's
then I KNEW I would be alright!
I gave you poems like "How does it feel," and "What
can't kill you" to name a few. I conquered bi-polar
with the mind, giving you the poem, "The winner in
Now some may say that's crazy, "You can't beat
bi-polar with the mind." With enough mustard
seed faith you can do anything I did find!
So don't let anyone tell you what you can and
cannot do. If no one else will stand by you, I'll
be there, I believe in you!
So here I am now today. I made it someway somehow.
Peace I found within my life, the storm is over now.
"Whatever you can conceive in the mind
you can achieve."
