Broken Brain

Broken Brain, a short, deeply evocative poem by Kitt O’Malley, inspired me to write the following poem of my own:

First they said I was schizophrenic
then they said I wasn’t
later they said I had bipolar
then they said I didn’t
today they say I have PTSD
of the Complex variety

Who am I really?

I am a lost little girl
trapped in a grandma’s body
stumbling over
the broken pieces
of me.
~Linda Lee

Broken Brain

Brain broken
Do not remember
Must constantly relearn
Brain not functioning properly
Not functioning as it once did
Must constantly relearn
Damn, I hate bipolar disorder
