Please don’t let me live a life completely confined in a box.
I want so much more.
And give me the courage to make the change when opportunity shows itself.
They are born, then put in a box; they go home to live in a box; they study by ticking boxes; they go to what is called “work” in a box, where they sit in their cubicle box; they drive to the grocery store in a box to buy food in a box; they talk about thinking “outside the box;” and when they die they are put in a box. All boxes, Euclidian, geometrically smooth boxes.
