The Box

Take your pain, your fears and sorrow

Put them in the box

Hide emotions from prying eyes

Put them in the box

Keep your tears from spilling over

Put them in the box

 

Memories of troubled times

Put them in the box

Senses alert expecting danger

Put them in the box

Triggers of sound, scent and touch

Put them in the box

 

All the things that cause you hurt

Put them in the box

Thoughts of those who did you harm

Put them in the box

Histories you’d rather forget

Put them in the box

    And then if you’re in the mood, run over that box with a steamroller 😉
