Can't Put Me in a Box: A Short Lyrical Poem

Updated on December 4, 2013

Don't put me in a box,

you'll hate when I break it.

I’m never getting in,

I never need to fake it.

I’m not cookie cutter clean

and no I don’t hate it.

I’m rough around the edges,

My face lightly shaded.

Hated by pretenders,

who pose for the camera,

I dance with life’s rhythms,

jump on every stanza.

I move with those punches,

even when they're landed.

I fake out my reflection

and he just can’t stand it.

I eat life like a peach,

while you whine about the fuzz,

Bees making honey,

you complain about the buzz.

I say it’s still sweet,

and you want to know why?

I fall like a peach,

So, I can learn how to fly.

So, as high as I can float,

I’m landing on the moon.

Neil may have beaten me,

but I know I’ll be there soon.

Cloud nine is nice,

but my heaven's even better.

When you escape your box,

don’t bother with a letter.

      "If I didn’t fall like a peach,

      I’d never learn how to fly".
