No Longer Tied to a State of Mind

by Niamh Lynam

No longer tied to a state of mind
Trapped no more inside
Wondering where I've been?
And why I stayed?
Thoughts that were once regulated
Set free at last
To be yourself
Is the greatest bounty
Hard to fathom, easy to mislay
But once attained - happiness resides
Relax in the moment
Let it embrace and enfold you
Inhale its virtue
Give in to the feeling
Of just Being
