There now seems to be an epidemic of people who say they suffer from bipolar disorder. Not a professional, so I can't say it's real or the latest faze; especially since so many celebrities now claim to have it.

Please don’t try to diagnose me

Mental illness is real, not mythology

Stop trying to fix me; just let me be

As hard as you try there is no remedy


Facets of my mind I can easily hide

I am good at hiding what I feel inside

Should I fight to live or commit suicide?

End this paradigm of Jekyll and Hyde


Do you touch a flame and not get burned?

If no one will teach, when does one learn?

Text books you read; degrees you earned

Stay out of my head; it is not your concern


A blind man feels to communicate

Like mist in the air, sanity dissipates

Unresolved frailties are an open gate

That leaves one exposed to a horrible fate
