This Box

They put you in this box and they say "you'll do fine" and "just survive"

What if you want more than it has to offer?

Maybe the walls are the wrong color or the wrong texture. 

You can see the seam of light dripping through the top.

You can’t help but wonder what's above you, other than this thin top.

Something has to be above that.



I’ll take it
