A mother, son and a daughter. All like to write poetry. This poetry was written when the authors were between the ages of 15 and 17. Can you tell who wrote which poem? Two of the writers have had a diagnosis of bipolar disorder. One of those two writers has been taken off all medication and declared by the doctors to be in remission. Why do we tell you this? So you can ponder the differences and the similarities we all may share, and that angst and growing and life's perspectives may not be so different between us all, regardless of what else we are dealing with. My family hopes you enjoy our little experiment. At the very least, we hope you find your thoughts provoked and your mind stimulated. Thank you for being a part of our experiment. My best to you all, Deborah Rose
