The State of Mind

If freedom is a state of mind,
And all you need is positive thought,
Happiness seemingly simple to find,
Contentment something that can’t be taught.

But, what if your mind is in a state?
Living with negative mental health,
Crushed by crippling anxious weight,
Poor in a world of joyous wealth.

Fixing the state your mind is in,
Expectation is hard to meet,
Judgement puts you in a spin,
Removing you from the driving seat.

Acceptance the key to being free,
Because you are you and I am me.
