Fragile, This Side Up

For me,
This box,
Careful,
The contents may crack.

A clue,
Some rocks,
Careful,
There’s no turning back.

Fragile, this side up up up
Fragile, this side up

Some words,
On stones,
Careful,
They’ll carve through your heart.

Like birds,
With bones,
Careful,
You’ll be pecked apart.

Fragile, this side up up up
Fragile, this side up

Wake up, open this package
Wake up, take out the knife
I can’t be fragile forever
Wake up, get on with my life

I’m here,
Inside,
Careful,
I shouldn’t stay long.

I fear,
I hide,
Careful,
Don’t sing the same song again.

Fragile, this side up up up
Fragile, this side up.
