More Than Just A Box-Edited Version

Poetry By: lehi girl72509

I'm not a perfect little box, and I don't want to be steryotyped. In this poem, I tried to express that to some extent.

I'm not a perfect little box
That some would organize
I'm more than fancy silver locks
or one you'd classify.

More than klutzy, more than fun
I'm smart and shrewdly wise
Naive I'm not; so quit your "hun"
Or face this smile's diguise.

I'm forced to be Miss goody good
So worry naught for me
A carbon-copy piece of wood
Remaining till I'm free

There's more to me than just a smile
Or friendly fragile wave
Although I'm human all the while
I'll try to just "behave"

I yearn to be unique and new
Discover who I am
To learn when "I myself" is true
Help me through this jam

For I am not a perfect box
I'm more than what I seem
Though labled with your typecast rocks
I will become my dream
