The Control Freak Inside

Control.

The deceptive truth

wandering eyes

an elusive spook.

.

Unaware of the threat

to you and your sanity.

with a grasp so tight

hoping to be released from its tyranny

.

Whilst only getting deeper

falling into its trap,

A juxtaposed mind

Neither this, neither that

.

A new world imagined

due to a love of the tight hold

unrealistic truths 

with nothing left to unfold.

.

A predicted future

taken as fact.

Smiles all around

until the control gets hacked.

.

The wrong turn recognised

perspectives readjust,

Decoy reset

a little unsure on what to trust

.

Deciding not to run,

to appreciate what is.

The once frantic mind

now reminded of the hidden bliss

.

Realistic with plans

and what it is that needs to change

an honest introspective search

to see whats really within range.

.

Taking each step as it comes

letting go of the grasp

believing in your true self;

and only trusting in that.
