At First a Bipolar Night, Then a Joyous Morn

When full of gloom and full of pain,
I all alone bemoan my state
like one that has slid back again
into despair which I most hate.

Despondent into the midnight,
I trouble dear God with my cries
as I suffer this bipolar plight
with burning, red, tear-laden eyes.
     
The night is long—I'm so distraught;
I yearn for rest, to help forget
the melancholy that feels like rot—
like Death and I first ever met!

But I must find solace in this—
my family and friends do care:
and if I die I will be missed.
So, I’ll endure the great despair.

But then sleep comes. And I have peace.
In the morn, I wake to arising—
Joy breaks in, and gives me new lease:
and myself I break off despising!

    Hi Ngoc :) I am bipolar also, it gets rough at times, but like yourself, if we can just hang in there till morning's light, God will make everything alright... everyone goes through sad times, yours is just more extreme, that's why it's called bypolar, but never put yourself down simply because you feel more deeply than some. Wishing you the best. hugs, catie :)
