One day, I wake up

In my head, I feel manic

One small thing goes awry, I feel panic

More of the same, for a day, week, month on up

One night I lay, down to sleep

I wake up, and here I sit, depressed again

Hopeless I feel, when in truth there is hope

I do not want to put my life, at the mercy of rope

Not ready to go, to the big eternal sleep.

Sadly common and it's a terrible disease. I'm currently in some mixed-up gulf between manic and depressive, brain overactive, limbs restless and perpetually anxious with all kinds of things screwing with my body...
