Inside The Box - Poem by Elannia Lake

We all try to explain
But something’s always standing in the way
Semantics
One person thinks one way
Someone else thinks another
When we try to cross that line
Called communication
Tongues tie, brains fry
And feelings get hurt
So we stay inside
Our little box
Of amenity, and ignorant bliss
But the one time
Someone thinks outside
That little box
Everybody gets insulted, offended
So they get shut down
Because they aren’t being
Politically correct
Who cares?
Who really cares about this ridiculous boundary we’ve set for ourselves?
Why do we restrict ourselves? Define ourselves?
Are we all so scared of rejection?
That we won’t step outside this pointless, useless, meaningless box
That inhibits us from reaching success
We need to step out
Be known for our daring, dauntless will
To be different, to stand out
Be the people who aren’t defined, or confined
By this stupid box
That controls all people
We have to break free, be free
And this box, will disappear
