A prisoner of the mind;
---
Housed within a self-built asylum;
[the] Walls [are] padded with soft tissue--
[the] Floors [are] littered with the debris of lost thought;
---
The tongue is bound;

angry rants impatiently await a release that will never come.
Enthusiasm remains chained by uncertainty to a wall of insecurity-
---
There is no release for the weak--
