Boxes - A Spoken Word

May 30, 2021


boxes, boxes, boxes,
I'm not a contortionist 
but I'd like like to fit in these
boxes, boxes, boxes
too afraid to explore identity
I'd rather stay in monotony
with these boxes

am I a jake, or an Amy
a harry or Hermione
a jim or a pam
gimme a break, damn

they're so alluring
these boxes
they make up for my
lack of personality

because what is small talk
without buzzfeed quizzes
which take us to the end point 
without going through mazes
but sooner or later you'll see
that the destination gave you
a false sense of security
if you just took the journey 
without wanting a huge hit of dopamine
I promise you, mirror
it would be much more fulfilling

you could make your own box
full of securities and flaws
it won't be governed by
these artificial laws
these barriers in front of you,
you could break down in time
because what are these walls
if not a construct of your own mind?
