Alter Ego

I have a dual personality;
I have bipolar tendencies.
One minute I'm on cloud nine,
the next I'm on the ground.


I know deep down,
my soul is happy.


But the other part of me
fills my brain
with negative thoughts.


It's a constant battle
between the truth
and the lies of my enemy.


My foe calls
my head her home.


It's a chronic state of mind,
but it's all I know.


Pessimism is a reflex,
an involuntary action
based on what happens to me.


But contentment
is a choice.
