    “Life in a box”

    My life lacks complication
    It has no eccentricities
    My life is simple
    I don’t even have to think
    I don’t even have to speak
    My life is decided for me
    My life is in a box

    My life lacks wit or humour
    It incorporates no pleasurable activities
    My life is lifeless
    I only ever study
    I only ever obey
    My life is controlled for me
    My life is in a box

    I cannot escape it
    I cannot control it
    I cannot begin to comprehend life outside it
    I try to run away
    I try to obtain authority
    I try to forget everything and start afresh
    I know it’s a pointless dream

    The walls star closing in on me
    The grip on me gets tighter
    The air I breathe becomes foul
    The light is repelled from my window
    The clothes I wear are no longer suitable
    The music I listen to is too loud
    The opinions I have are too controversial

    There is no point in fighting
    I know it’s a pointless dream

    My life lacks all serenity
    It has no privacy
    My life is wretched
    My life is in a box
