114 (who?)
I am thirteen years old.
I am not typical.
I am not average.
I am me.

I have been in two mental facilities.
Both times for thoughts of suicide.
I am not emo.
I am not a freak.
I am me.

My mother attempted suicide about six months ago.
My sister attempted suicide when i was eight.
But, I am not a victim.
I am not tortured.
I am me.

My father had a heart attack just over a week ago.
He was hospitalized for nine days.
He recently returned to the hospital for kidney problems.
I suffer from Bipolar Disorder with Psychotic Features.
I have hallucinations.
I have delusions.
But I am not a disorder.
I am not my difficulties.
I am not my troubles.

I am me.
:) this is me. Who are you?

-is this true? I don't mean to sound like I'm doubting this is true, but to go through all that... It must be hard to even think about it... Truly, I think this is amazing poetry, so I encourage you to keep writing!-

I am impassioned, I am weak, I am eternal fragility with words and thoughts of iron - i am, for whatever good or ill it may do me.
Ah well, perks of being a gemini, perhaps; or a wallflower, or an eccentric - or just a person.
Anyway; simplistic but very evocatively written, with tremendous courage to share something so deeply personal.
