Out of the box

Remember these four walls

Remember the sound of songs

Before the walls caved silence

A space among the walls

Remember how you would stare

How corners kept you scared

A hold waiting there

If you would even dare

Remember how you avoided

The most you stayed away

Just in case you noticed

The walls begin to fade

And after all that fading

You would stop and say

“If there’s something more

This box might drop and break.”

Remember these four walls

How suddenly did they break

Out of the box untethered

You laughed and you became
