A Poet Was Born

                                                    I once lived inside a box…
                                      It had just four walls and a hanging clock…

                                  I stood in the middle and reached for a sound…
                                       Until a glimmer of light splattered around…

                                         My mind and soul pushed with emotion…
                                       In time it tipped by a heart with motion…

                                       A scroll of paper from today till tomorrow…
                                 With an ink dipped pen filled with joy not sorrow…

                                      I scribbled words till my fingers were worn…
                                  While in the shadows of a box a Poet was born…
