Craving spicy barbecue chips
I like rhymes and pizza

Also I hope you're having a good day :)

Broken Box

May 15, 2018

You have a nice wooden box
It’s all polished smooth
On the outside, flawless
No need to improve

You know it’s a box
But there is no way in
It does seem quite hollow
Where do you begin

You try pressing on the sides
And tapping various locations
Break your nails trying
Tiny blood-red carnations

And now you’re getting frustrated
Because the stupid box won’t open
You weren’t meant to see inside
It wasn’t you it had chosen

But you force with all your might
And throw it to the floor
Swing your leg and kick it around
Until you can’t breathe no more

You reluctantly pick it up again
Hoping for a difference
Something inside rattles
Still you ignore the significance

But the box still won’t open
And it seems to have shrunk
“Whatever” you say as you bin it
“It was just a piece of junk.”

    Thank you!! The box was supposed to represent a person and who they chose to open up to. How forcing someone to talk may prove to be more destructive than helpful and how people react when they can't gain access to something not meant for them.

    Amazing!!!!! It's so wonderful, and I dont know if it's meant to have a great big meaning behind it, but to me it certainly wouldn't be about just a box.
