Wrapped up-

Like a present,

For a very good friend

Like a cardboard box,

Delivered to your door

 

Wrapped up-

Like a gift,

Tied up in curled ribbon

Like chocolates

In a delicate white box

 

Wrapped up-

Are we

In the cycle of monotony

 

Wrapped up-

Are we

In this complicated life

 

Wrapped up-

Are we,

With two choices left to make:

 

We can remain wrapped up,

Focused on ourselves,

Or we can decide

To open up this box.
