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 Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
