    Mood Swings

    Mood swings, I battle like never before, Never been so unhappy, Life at present, Not what I wanted, If I’d have known, This was coming, I’d have left town, Years ago, When I had the chance, I wonder, Did I know? And was too scared to face it.

    Struggle

    Each day I struggle to get by with my mood swings. One minute I am happy and smiling, the next minute I am crying for no reason whatsoever.  Little things trigger my depression and I become suicidal.  It sucks ***.
