Box and Vicious Cycle


I live in a box
Up right and
The horizontal position
While I was let in

I fight for breaking it
Try to open a side
In the light or
In the dark
To have freedom

Go back to the past
And look at it
The box is too small
From the position that I see

I live in another box
Within many boxes
Up right and horizontal
Perhaps without a position

Jump from one to another
In days and nights

To catch happiness
To grab hopes
To extend unlimited bounds
Meanwhile I dream for freedom

I want to break one
That I feel a pressure
Instead of break
I am granted a window

To open and to close
Whenever I wish
Not to flee
But to live

I live in a box
Within boxes
As I did in the past
I want to come out
From the vicious cycle boxes of the box
And also from the box

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
