I am

 being crushed

by all this. I look

 around and see others

 pounded by procedure into flat,

 dull uniformity- submitting to the suffocating



I feel the weight now.


I resist becoming like the lifeless souls around

 me - I donít want to be dimmed, smashed,

 and driven into place unseen and silent.


But I am on my shaking knees,

    my head is bent, and

 I groan inside...




And so I shine.
