The high walls and dull floors and roofs are transparent as the sun radiates through. Slouched in defeat, hair in strands around her head, she sits in the center. Looking out the room is only dead hope. She places her hands behind her and leans back, eyes closed in thought. The walls slacken and the love of the sun soothes her skin and a breeze tangles her hair gorgeously. But people see her and noise enters her box. The green field seems to stretch on forever. As stress’ tendrils peek inside her box, the walls harden again. She turns over on her belly and looks through the bottom of her box. She watches the people as they return to normal. She watches them converse. She watches them enjoy themselves on a green field that stretches endlessly. In her control she sees only a part of the field, only just below her box. Only a few people. Only little interference.

The elegant walls and glassy floors and roofs are transparent as the sun shines its ray through. Relaxed in content, hair flowing in strands gently touched by the breeze, she calmly sits in the center. Looking out the room seeing only the small picture is hope. She places her hands behind her back and leans back, letting the sun help her thoughts flow smoothly through her mind.
