there was a movie called girl in a box
it was based in a true story
about a young woman that was abducted and held captive in a box for seven years
what I discovered is unlike that girl
many women live in a box of their own design and their own creation
and they don’t realize that they have a key or the ability to unlock that box
to break it wide open until they are living the lives of their dreams
it’s not overnight
until it is
it’s painful like birth
but at the end
you have birthed yourself
you have birthed yourself and you can rinse yourself off
and start that new life
that you’ve been meaning to have

open sesame
