Dr Alex Tang


Chains comes in various lengths and sizes,

come, my friend, find one of your own choosing.

Some long; allowing freedom in false guises,

others short; hobbling, troubling, controlling.


Chains of gold makes wonderful gilded cage,

some of tapered steel; cold metallic surrounding.

Chains of feelings; glimpses of heaven’s gauge,

others, obligation; rigid, binding and demanding.


Chains squeezing brains, closing minds,

some winding round necks, gagging speech.

Chains tying loving hearts, hurting binds,

others, piercing souls, condemnation seed.


Huddle in my cell; a world not kind,

bundled in chains, someone’s trophy.

Armor rusting, hurting, marking time,

tousled, bound, self-ness slowly atrophy.
