The Unshadowed Box


Sometimes .... we find boxes without shadows
And inside, minds are on the straight and narrow
Not hiding anything at all, just opening arms wide
And when you see that, you just want to curl up inside

For you know when you do, there will be no darkness
As the box you've curled up inside has only lightness
And you busy yourself gently touching all the ledges
Secure in the knowledge the box has no sharp edges

And outside ... you know that box casts no shadows
For your assessment of it was completely hallowed
And so you stretch out in comfort .... feeling no cast
For you've finally found something you know will last
