Outside the box

I was told once that we are all born into boxes

Each decorated to distract

To the point of not even noticing we are in them

It was hard to believe at first

Until I began to see cracks in the corners

Accepting the possibility, I stepped out for the first time

Took a look from the outside

And some days I wish I would have never left that blissful ignorance

It seems impossible to shove myself back in

Now that I know it was just a box

    Maybe now that you know, you can create the box you like best, or bounce from box to box as the moment asks. I also look at it as wearing masks. So many lovely masks! I plan on trying them all on! ❤️
