I am bipolar At my best I’m Cleopatra A queen to behold Dignified, graceful and loyal my mantra If only you seek my eyes and the truth it told I am bipolar At my worst I’m Vincent Van Gogh À genius disguised as a beggar Painting, portraying, displaying for the world to see The distinctive ugliness that I see as me And in between I toil to show that I can be Normal, not high not low, Calm, not flushed, not drained Smiling, not manic, not depressed Me, and not your clown, but no such luck For… I am bipolar, and bipolar am I.

And then it begins again...

I am bipolar At my best I’m Cleopatra A queen to behold Dignified, graceful and loyal my mantra If only you seek my eyes and the truth it told I am bipolar At my worst I’m Vincent Van Gogh À genius disguised as a beggar Painting, portraying, displaying for the world to see The distinctive ugliness that I see as me And in between I toil to show that I can be Normal, not high not low, Calm, not flushed, not drained Smiling, not manic, not depressed Me, and not your clown, but no such luck For… I am bipolar, and bipolar am I.

And when I think I have it sorted out, It starts AGAIN.

I AM BIPOLAR At my best I’m QUEEN CLEOPATRA Dignified, graceful and loyal my mantra If only you seek my eyes and the truth it told I AM BIPOLAR At my worst I’m VINCENT VAN GOGH À GENIUS disguised as a beggar Painting, portraying, displaying for the world to see the distinctive ugliness that I see as me And in between I toil to show that I can be Normal, not high not low, Calm, not flushed, not drained Smiling, not manic, not depressed Me, and not your clown, but no such luck For… I am bipolar, and bipolar am I. And it never stops, it starts again and again

I am bipolar At my best I’m like Cleopatra Almost a queen to behold Dignified, graceful and loyal my mantra If only you seek my eyes and the truth it told I am bipolar At my worst I’m Vincent Van Gogh, a beggar Painting, portraying, displaying for the world to see The distinctive ugliness that is me And in between I toil to show that I can be Normal, not high not low, Calm, not flushed, not drained Smiling, not manic, not depressed Me, and not your clown, but no such luck For… I am bipolar, and bipolar am I.
