Beyond confinement

Trapped in a frame
of her own creation,
she peers at the world
through frightened eyes,
hungering for connection,
longing for touch,
haunted and contained
by the choking net of experience.
Yet still the Light, filtered through
a canopy of misconceptions,
bathes her in a gentle glow
of invitation:
Because the box is hers,
she can choose to step outside:
take off her shoes and touch her toes
into the cool damp earth
that lies beyond confinement.
