Resilience of the Mentally Ill

I have no idea what it is like to be normal

Nor do I wish to ever be so

I feel everything to an extreme

Highs and lows


Intense always

Even on the dark days

I was not made to be normal

I was born with this chemical imbalance on purpose


To make it known

That the strongest people have been through the most

Not physically but mentally

Those are the real heroes


They fight demons alone

They save themselves

They do not need your approval

They are the strongest people I know


I am one of them

Perhaps so are you

I have anxiety and bipolar 2

Now, what about you?
