The Box

Where have you put yourself?

In a box?


The perfect fit

You cross your heart

and put a stamp on it

Haunted by the beat

As it ticks time

You fly away

To chase delight

Delivered place to place

Seeking escape

Boxed in the restraint

Of a narrow mind

Form-fitting molds

And chains of wire

Cries for mercy

By your heart’s desire

And what happens

When your box

Breaks down?

The evocative beat

Grows increasingly loud…

See you writhe and struggle

“As within, so without”

Tell me the truth

Without a shadow of a doubt

Are you boxed in

Or have you boxed yourself out?

  1. As within, so without. I have been boxed up for quite a while, at that period of time, I got to re-discover who I am and what I really want in life. All the darkness is no lie, but time will gradually box me out. Lovely piece of poetry. Hope to see more from you. Keep up the good work. ❤️❤️❤️

    1. Thank you so much! It is a beautiful thing to re-discover yourself and gain clarity on where you are going in life! I am glad you experienced such a revelation. I find some of the darkest times I have experienced have also lead to some of the most transformative moments. I find that seeing the light in times of darkness shows we aren’t as boxed in as we may feel at times.
      I appreciate your kind words and I’m sending lots of light your way. ❤️✨
