Enlightened Submission - Poem by Joyce Rugg

The world says we're defective
so we change to fit the mold
Locking our true selves away,
tactics crude, but effective

Bound and gagged, life passes by
and we embrace imprisonment
once fear of abandonment
outweighs our hate of the lie

Into our minds, poison delves
as we forget it's an act
Too soon we're shells of plastic,
rebelling against our selves
