Pandora in reverse

 

It started life as a small wooden box

And then, as it grew

In stature, its composition changed;

First to gold, well cherished

And finally to stone;

Fixed tightly shut with room for no more.

So many secrets

So many ills, such deeds undone and

Done too well;

A vacuum holds no deeds or secrets

It just exists has no

Feelings or concerns

The box sits in the vacuum and smiles.
