Box and vicious cycle

	
I live in a box
Up right and 
The horizontal position
While I was let in

I fight for breaking it
Try to open a side
In the light or
In the dark
To have freedom

Go back to the past
And look at it
The box is too small
From the position that I see

I live in another box
Within many boxes
Up right and horizontal 
Perhaps without a position

Jump from one to another 
In days and nights 

To catch happiness 
To grab hopes
To extend unlimited bounds
Meanwhile I dream for freedom

I want to break one
That I feel a pressure 
Instead of break
I am granted a window

To open and to close
Whenever I wish
Not to flee 
But to live

I live in a box
Within boxes
As I did in the past
I want to come out
From the vicious cycle boxes of the box
And also from the box

Udaya R. Tennakoon
