Box Off

box off

If someone crafts a box with you in mind, it doesn’t mean you have to get in it.

You decide where you do and do not fit, no one else get to make that call…T.Odessa Kane ©

Box Off

I do not wish to diligently learn how to

craft a box that I can grow old Inside.

I do not want to know how to precisely

tick a box, stroke my ego, feed my

pride. I do not want to be shown how to

craft boxes for others, nor how to create

for them a label, I do not want to constantly

be making spot checks, deciding who is

and who is not worthy, of value, able.

I do not want to build my life at your expense

nor do I want you to build your life at mine

I do not want to daily count the cost,

fall ever short of the plumb-line. I do

not want you to treat me like I am a friend

when to you I’m but a job, I don’t want

to be groomed, not broken, coerced

I do not want you my soul to rob.

I do not want to dream all of those impossible

dreams, in order to toe your line.

I do not want to break nor sell myself

short, whilst on my gifts you dine.

I do not want to lose, or to starve

the best of me, simply to feed the worst

of you, I do not want to wear your chains

I do not want to give you credit that is not due.

 I do not want to learn how to craft a box

that I can grow old inside, I do not want to know

how to tick a box, how to stroke my ego,

feed my pride.
