Stuff it away
Fill it to the brim
All your thoughts and fears
Into the shoebox of life
Sift through it later
Rediscover the past
Predict the future

Guilt
Anger
Hope
Fear at the bottom
Happiness blanketing the evils
Different Styles and sizes
The box wears out
Empty it
Throw it away
Get a bigger one
Put it all there
Repeat the cycle

Replace and repeat
Continuance is the key
The box will never really empty
Your life consists of those boxes
You can never have too many
