Boxed In

By    

Pandora wasn’t dumb for opening her box.

Opening boxes is exciting because there is always something inside.

Would we still open boxes if they were empty?
Does empty always ask that we fill it?

Maybe Pandora was sick of people telling her what to be full of.
Maybe Pandora knew she was enough without the box so she opened it in hopes we would all forget she had a box to her name.

I guess we owe her an apology.

For tethering her to the one thing she was trying to get away from:

That dumb box.
