Feels like you’re living in a box that’s smaller than your body.
The inability to make eye contact
The hunched shoulders
The voice, almost too small to hear,
You’d think, the beginning of stepping into authenticity
Feels like a wave of relief, and often it does.
Yet, so often it feels
Like ripping off your own skin
And stepping out into the world
Completely naked, unprotected
Like a turtle without a shell.
Yet what is the cost
Of remaining in that box
That shell where you can hardly breathe?
You have every right to stay there
It certainly feels safe
Though it often proves to be the opposite.
The box obliterates
Because the box of suppression,
Of hiding in order to fit in,
Or to not attract uncomfortable attention,
Or to make sure you don’t get hurt,
Eliminates all vulnerability
All that uncomfortable stuff
So you’re left with numbness.
This is our choice in life.
Yet, be gentle with yourself please
If your box feels like a cage of steel
Compared to another’s fragile eggshell.
Be so understanding.
Everyone’s suppression is manufactured uniquely
And your authenticity is yours to claim
In your own divine timing.
