The Suppressed

Living in cloisters
under a shroud
amidst a hushed silence
clinched in somber discipline,

Individual choices
endure denial,
conformity, the single norm
from which, none can stray,
lest to sin, become an ally,

Personal liberty, lies squashed
like a colony of ants
trampled underfoot,
partial paralysis
of abilities, ebbing,

Desires bubble
stirring rebellion
cascading currents
threaten to destabilize
the equilibrium
of his staggering sanity.
