Step Out Of The Box - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak
Au revoir to life in crowded, unkempt buildings, filled with stale air and dirty restrooms.
No life or nature can you find beyond steel and glass doors.
There are no good reasons to place yourself inside, when the only way to live is outside in our desert's vast, expansive and safe sands.
Eyes touching cacti stubble, mountainous rocks and petals of beautiful flowers, which can always replace staring at computer monitors for hours on end.
Walk through all the paper and red tape, say good-bye to daily drudgery and people you don't really like.
Step out of the box, run free, become independent and get in touch soul to soul with nature and self once again.
Poet's Notes about The Poem
The city lies crinkled inside window
reflections of skyscrapers.
Butterflies are free, but only in the capacity
that they can spread their wings.
I'm not interested, I'll just listen.
