I am

 being crushed

by all this. I look

 around and see others

 pounded by procedure into flat,

 dull uniformity- submitting to the suffocating

regulation.

 

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...

 

"I REFUSE!"

 

And so I shine.
