Poem about Self, Spirit, Society, Nature and Freedom

Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem started with the idea of ‘inhibition’ but then developed into something else during its creation, although it still has an element of inhibition within. The place to escape inhibition is within. Here it is:
Inner Strength, Mental Health
pull down the walls
of the mind
not the community
act savage
in the wilderness
home of freedom
lost paradise, paradise found
escape to solitude
thinking of spirit
remember I
have an animality
deep inside me
my own yew tree
