Almost Went Out Of My Mind - Poem by Frank Sheehan

Traipsing through daily stress
perturbed by the routine grind
with malfunctioning overtures.
Thought I was losing it
as I relinquished sanity
to civilization's mundane aura.
But I realized it wasn't me
It was the mass
of laws, rules and regulations
that stifled the flow
of freedom into a cubicle,
put you in a concrete box
limiting your movements, actions.
It was pestering my mind
causing me to believe in
unwarrantable limitations that
come in droves, in abundance.
I just wanted to enjoy life,
do as I please, live fully
with the relationships
that really matter.
