Unboxing Day

What have you let out of the box on this day?

Love, words, smiles, songs, parts of yourself that stay hidden

For the other 364?

Is it the space, the time, the love, the breath… or the wine

That let you be you, out of your box?

Or has the bow remained tied?

The wrapping uncrumpled?

The mask firmly fixed?

If so, fear not

Tomorrow is another day.

Gloves on

Shoes off

And back into the ring

For another round

In the battle for you.
