Human Trauma


Is only ever a waiting game

What’s been pressed down

Will one day just explode

Hidden things

Must one day see the light


Will be revealed to sight


My life was repressed

Thanks to the Church

Removed me from this world

At age eleven

Put me in a cage

No world could I engage

They called it ‘sublimation’

Very clever


The world is full of people


Their bodies and their souls

Are stigmatised

Repression stalks the land

Dressed us as something grand

We are called to heal the sick
