I Am Stronger Than This

I Am Stronger Than This”

A Poem By: Samantha Steiner

me-I-am-STRONGERA lack of sleep has my brain buzzing

With millions of unanswered questions

I may be a bit emotional

But I know mentally I have to fight this

These thoughts and feelings

Will try to get the best of me

I have to find a way to stay okay 

So I picked up a pen and found some paper

I need to get these thoughts out of my head

Until they’re dead

Utilizing the only coping mechanism

me-3-31-18That works for me

I write and I write until it’s all out of me

Wondering about the past is no good for me

It just jumbles my thoughts

And tries to steal my recovery

I am stronger than this

Emotions are just things you feel

That will eventually be gone

I know it’s not neverending like I used to think

I’ve made so much progress

These past seven months

SnapChat-3.3.18 (3)I refuse to fall back

To the crippling grips, its had on me 

I feel stronger every day

But I’m still bipolar

So I know I still fall

But at least now I know

I can pick myself back up

And move along!


Thanks for reading!
