Redemption

Encaged with temperamental individuals,
Dressed alike.
Forced into two systems, living as a prisoner.
Living within an alternative hierarchy.

When guards’ eyes are conveniently averted,
A new order arises,
Based only on brutish strength and spite.
Morals disappear, anger grows.

Encaged with peaceful individuals,
Dressed with Monastic compassion.
Encouraged to read, immersed in nature,
Living in an Egalitarian society.

Able to learn and grow in wisdom.
In time, willing to change.
Accepting noble ideas for good living,
Preparing to return as a benefit to society.
