Third Place

 Out of the Box

Tick… Tock… Out of the box-
   Solidify the emptiness of this enclosure.
   Shattered mirrors self- esteem
   Are we all just living in a dream?
   Broken promises full of lies,
   Hatred, scorn, and sin rage on.

Tick…Tock… Out of the box-
   Reveal the contents tucked inside
   A rose so red, a symbol of my love
   Doves flying on a breath of fresh air.
   Happiness floating everywhere!
   Affectionate, resounding joy and praise,
   This my friend will truly amaze!

Tick… Tock… Out of the box-
   Cast judgement if you must!
   Sealed tight and sprung into the light…
A convergence of all things right or wrong.
Unwrapped, unfoiled, and sent straight to you.
Waiting to be discovered anew.

Tick… Tock… Tick- open the box quick
   Touched by the hands of time…
               YOU’RE FINALLY EXPOSED!
