Control - Poem by Elena Sandu

Control control
control control! !
Too many times a day
Control the sleeping
time, the wake!
Control amount
of coffee, milk,
sugar intake!
Control breakfast,
lunch and dinner's time,
Also the calories
and vitamins to come!
Control your words
control your thoughts
control the sitting
straight out pose
Control own look
from head- to toes!
Forget not those
that count
the most:
Feelings! !
Control them!
Out not to let
controlling self
to not became a threat
to whom or what
to ask I wouldn't dare
right now, I wouldn't
even care..
No more control!
No keeping sane!
FREE! ! !
as the Wind who's
messing up my hair
I - Want - To- Be! ! ! !

Let others have control,
not me! ? !
Control..control control
control? !
Oh, pardon me! -bull s..!
I had enough:
-I'M OUT OF IT! ! !

    Hi, Elena & Steph! The two least controlling people I have met online. How many times have you been given 'borders' (controls) that you were not seeking? I'm in the hundreds & counting.... (Report) Reply

    'I want to be.' Oh, words so true, to my heart and my mind. You are a philosopher, and a poet all in one. You will forever be. (Report) Reply

    What fun is life full of controls
    If there is no freedom to souls.
