    No matter the time
    I can always hear the sounds
    I can hear the screaming
    I can hear the calls for help
    but I can do nothing
    for I am confined in my box
    I hear my crying
    As I hear the shots....
    and I see the blood
    Yet I am unable to help
    for I am confined to my box
    I thought my box would
    allow me to be free
    free from the evil of me
    but I can't escape this prison
    so I continue to sit
    in my white padded box

    it's time to put all else in a box (instead of yourself), ship it off to parts unknown and call it a day.
    i understand you sexe,
    "God has not given us the spirit of fear, but love , power and a sound mind."- Paul the apostle..
    ...as we put fears in a box....

    nice story,
    jh.

    I feel ya! Sometimes the box is for safety!

    I feel ya on this one, a friend of mine uses that metaphor quite a lot, being boxed in. out the box , in the box! Not like hiding really, like security. But , "EVIL FLOURISHES WHEN GOOD MEN(WOMEN) DO NOTHING"! ONE LOVE, FIND PEACE:heart: :D

    very thought provoking....

    ... I do feel the need for self-protection from the evils that wo/men do in this world...but we do well to take care that we don't imprison ourselves....rendering our souls useless....

    thank you for this one
