I'm expected to fit a box
That I cannot mold into 
From the expected I'm lost 
To what extent does it cost
To fall into something that I cannot get to
I'm expected to fit a box
From this box my heart's begun to frost
And I don't know if it'll thaw how it'd like to
From the expected I am lost
All of the judges coming in flocks 
But because of this bot I cannot become
the person that I was meant to
I'm expected to fit a box
It's impossible to change the box I'd have 
to turn back the clocks
However even if we could it wouldn't change the view
From the expected I am lost
No matter the cost we couldn't change
the mocks from not fitting in the box
But whoever said that we had to?
I'm expected to fit a box
From the expected I'm lost
This is old but it's my original so...yea...

    Stunning poem. It really made me think about my own "box" and the different expectations we are all asked to meet, be it by parents, friends, teachers, onlookers... Amazing work <3
