Unboxed

 You fling it open for the first time/but I’m gone
 
 A box that held my dreams
 A box that was my vision board
 A box of changing aspirations
 A box that captured transitions
 
 You fling it open with suspicion/ but relax
 
 It shows flowing water
 It shows many versions
 It shows evolution of spirit
 It shows unending journeys
 
 You fling it open with curiosity/but confused
 
 There are no walls to separate
 There are spaces - undefined
 There is a door, and a choice
 A door held in place - by choice
 
 You fling it open/ but don’t know how to shut  
You fling it open, but I'm gone

    1. Does any book have a list of items in Pandora’s book? I think evil in the world has surpassed that.

      BTW, my perspective in wtiting this was the limitlessness of personality not recognised.

  1. I love this ending:
    There is a door, and a choice
    A door held in place – by choice”
    In the end….there is always choice. Except for some I think whose circumstances are so dire that even choice is horrific. But here….I feel a sense of affirmation at the end.
