Bird In A Box


I like my box
though I use to not
relish the restrictions
cause I had been indoctrinated
by the whole freedom myth

That “birds need to fly” bullshit

So one day I flew away

Crash landed

Bad choices

Shit happens

So I traded in my wings
for the safety of conformity

Now I like my box
and the security it brings

False as it may be

Since life does have a way
of seeping through
these little cocoons
and permeating
our orderly containers with stains

At least I still got
these crumbling walls
to keep me company

Since I did pay a steep price for them
