While all around are attempting to trampoline over the high walls of dogma, escape the stratosphere and break down the fences and barriers of structure, order and civilisation...
WE CLAM UP!
Though life bursts within us, we shrink in fear at the thought of expressing or revealing our inner selves... WE LACK AFFIRMATION
Fear, inhibitionism, weedy drips, bland & boring
Whether angry or simmering with joy.
WE SAY NOTHING
We do not venture, we do not gain.
Our faint hearts will never win fair hands.
We are the wallflowers around the dancefloor of life.
We hide our lights under our bushels.
But then we leap out like tigers with a secret explosion that takes the world by surprise
- they think we are drunk!
And SUDDENLY - the universe bursts into spontaneous silence. I announce today that to be tense an inhibited while all around is relaxed and calm is REAL and an expression of the universe's affliction upon the sensitive soul. We are real. We do not hide our inhibitionism. We loudly proclaim our silence from the rooftops!
And when the world shouts back "Chill out!", we reply "Why?!"
(and what does 'chill out' mean anyway?)
LET US EXHIBIT OUR INHIBITIONISM!
