Solemnly swore to silence

this hedge is my hope

struggling for security – pending

to survive, this

synthetic sphere called ‘home’

ever shaming the truth as uncouth

ingrained before my youth.


To safeguard my sanity

I serve the gods

of fear, greed, denial and anger.

they command my soul’s surrender

they bid, “Hide your light”

detached from the sham, my spirit scintillates

only to gaze on it in the night

still it burns – I yearn

still churns, resistance.
