Chemical Imbalance

October 9, 2017
By Anonymous

It’s not that hard to just be happy,

don’t think about it,
Calm yourself down it's not that hard,
Why are you still thinking about that,
You don’t seem depressed,
You don’t seem like the bipolar type.
Depression is a chemical imbalance,
I physically cannot get over it,
With years of therapy,
And years and years of medication,
I am only okay when I am on a medication,
Bipolar doesn’t mean moody,
I am happy some weeks,
Some weeks I am sad,
Sometimes I have irrational bouts of anger,
I have a lot wrong with me,
But you wouldn’t know,
I am a closed book,
Very few know what I really feel,
Nobody knows what my inner struggle is,
Nobody knows me.

I have struggled with mental illnesses for probably 4 years now.  I had to write poetry for school so here we are.
