Out of The Box (A) Out of the Box Out of the Box I was lost in the box called life…In it, (I) I wanted learning but my education was deafening I wanted truth but my reality faked its root I wanted to buy the right counsel but my mind controller got me its left sell I wanted to be free but my pursuit turned a tree I wanted information but my vision brought me deformation I wanted wellness but my state showed illness I wanted food but my money was rude I wanted a wife but my life mirrored a knife! I wanted the clarity of pleasure but my naked eyes saw the dullness of pressure I wanted to live forever but my death was to question For Ever I wanted peace but my perception reflected unease (II) I wanted to know about people but my understanding was a fumble I wanted to be everyone’s friend but my experience was the pal’s end I wanted to be rich but my efforts didn’t catch a fish! I wanted direction but my limitation was the obstruction I wanted to know the ‘why’ to everything happening but my answer had to cry to all prevailing I wanted to invest in good but my previous return showed “fooled” I wanted to scream because of pains but my calmness showed up because of gains (III) I wanted people to hear my voice but my quest was a noise I wanted money but my struggle was funny! I wanted to know why the world was divided but the response was: “Its control is what’s favorite” I wanted to know what happens after death but my physical life told me I was on earth I wanted to tell people my experience but my words failed me in their presence I wanted to know if I knew what I know but my existence replied with a “NO!” I wanted to find myself through my works but my inner-self whispered: “If you want to find yourself, then think Out Of the Box!” NOTE: ALL POSTS BY THE AUTHOR ARE HIS ORIGINALS.
