I touch your tears
I can not stop
I find I weep with you
let me sit here quietly
even if it is only for a moment
I will share your burden and cares
perhaps some day
I will discover how
to erase your sorrows and my own
but until then my friend
you will not have to bear them alone
no, I am not as strong as you think
without realizing it
you give me that strength
I will tell you a little secret,
others burdens are easier to lift
and to elevate your spirits
I must put aside my own woes
and while I shoulder your pain
my own becomes bearable
for in such moments
I loose my self-indulgent ego
and remember my humanity

I am interested in and fascinated by so many things in the world around me. I am a dreamer and a lover. I endure great pain and sadness. I am bi-polar. I have learned to embrace the many facets of who I am. I chose to view my illness as just another part of what makes me unique. I write as a form of self-expression and art. I share in the hopes that others can identify with my writing and know they are not alone.
