You and I, we live in this box.
Our box is in black and white.
Don’t get me wrong, it is a beautiful box.
It has everything to make me comfortable and I am very happy inside of our box.
I look around our small box, all the wonderful things inside of it.
The things that make me so happy. How happy you make me!
There is absolutely nothing wrong with our box, I could live in that box with you forever and be happy.
But sometimes, I look up and I see the top of the box, the folds where it opens up and it calls me over to go take a peek…
As i look through the slit of the folds, my eyes open wide and my senses come alive.
I look outside of the box and I see endless color.
Hues and shades from the entire spectrum.
These are colors that I did not even realize I lacked inside of our box.
It almost seems like there is no end to what is outside.
So I savor every moment until I am mandated to come down.
Back into our box - where the colors are dull, because they are not there.
How is one supposed to sit in the midst of winter in Narnia, when you know Aslan is sitting outside waiting to show you an endless summer.
