With my cup held high

I look beyond the sunshine

Feelings of this cannot

Sustain this trip

Overstuffed my grey travel bag, brimming at the seams

I put everything I had in there

Even my ghosts and those with hollow eyes

that I see in my dreams

Fearless and full of bliss

I pack more in

But it didn’t last

Mistakes were made

I can’t handle this place

My grey travel bag ripped at the seams

When I tried to stuff more in.

Broken, broken (I have fallen in)

No where to go

I must pack again

Tucked away and in a hide

I slowly see the world as it goes by

28 days they say

But much more if you haul through

So very very sure I said bye to those ghosts and the ones with the hollow eyes

I am well on my way 

To freedom, I have begun to feel

Freedom falls from a beckoning call

Oh no, I know this place, 

This one a different town

I have travelled so far

I know where it began

It wasn’t part of my plan

I looked beyond the sunshine.

I am on a very long trip

Stuffed my grey travel bag again

After a stitch or two

Staring down at me once again

Those hollow eyes and ghosts too

I don’t need a lecture

I know what I need to do

I just need a safe place to hide.

Freedom, Freedom is waiting inside.

Welcome to my blog. I have been journal writing for years. I took a course in Creative writing and found I enjoy writing short stories and poetry. I write more when I am hypomanic or manic.
I went into Rehab for Alcohol Addictions and have been sober for fourteen years.
Shortly after I quit drinking I was diagnosed with Bipolar 2, I have since been diagnosed with Bipolar 1.
I enjoy talking about my story, for people to learn or relate. I try and have a healthy lifestyle and try to use my coping strategies. Life is just too boring without Bipolar, it is a blessing but yet sometimes a curse.
I am currently working on a book and dream of publishing one day.
I am so excited to have found Wordpress.
This is my new adventure.
