I live in a world painted
with colors that captivate life
bringing bright arrays of insight
And when they mix with manic moods
they provide the most beautiful view.
They tell me these meds
will fix my broken head
pills that make me resilient
but nothing seems as brilliant
it’s like they tone down
everything in me.
Is it so wrong to want to keep
the intense way I see things?
Why must my colors must be dulled now
to potentially prevent a future breakdown?
Without my light, who am I?
