Frozen in Space
time shouldn’t be stagnant;
it ought to flow
like electrons through magnets
a world that can’t be frozen.
the sun is supposed to rise,
a ball of fire
that remains in the skies,
but suddenly it’s everywhere.
humans aren’t meant to be stuffed
like peas in a pod;
we became handcuffed
to a building that ceased to be home.
communication: the next hurdle
something that was never a problem before
became a failed attempt at wordle;
where no one was heard and no one listened.
true colors seems to go to far
but that’s exactly what was discovered.
tradition became a bazaar
for parents to pick and choose what was allowed.
the beginning was wrapped in a bow;
even pandora’s box was beautiful.
anything to not break the familial vow
when there was such disagreement.
protests, politics, and planned parenthood
battling ignorance outside and at home
Became a could, should, would,
Not without fears of injury or infection.
supposedly the sun also set.
along with our motivation
maybe it was just a bad mindset
but things that once brought joy were now monotonous.
time was static.
despite happenings, the world remained enclosed
in a single house that became problematic.
but we stay, just to be safe.
