A Poem

Box of society,
Box of culture,
Box of geography,
Box of values,
Box of expectations;
All try to bind us
And we try to escape.

Some shatter the walls
And some fly away,
To be free;
From the box
And what the box represents;
Only to find years later
That we ended up
In a new box
We created for ourselves.

So let us venture,
To create a life outside the boxes
For our little ones;
Where they can discover,
Their true nature,
Their purpose,
And their own selves;
Without being crushed
Under the burden of boxes.

An ode

You and I,
We are so similar.

You want to travel the world,
And so do I.

You want to meet new people,
From different cultures,
Of different ages and beliefs;
And so do I.

You want to leave your mark on this earth,
And so do I.

You like winters,
And so do I.

You want to unify man with god,
And so do I.

You and I,
Our ways and means are different
But our objective is the same.

You and I,
We are in a mutually exclusive relationship,
Dear Corona Virus,
It is only when your adventures end
That mine will begin.
