The Boy in the Box
A Parable for Children and Adults
A sad boy in a box is visited by a lively bee who encourages him to step out and live happily. A worthy message about how our thoughts and the choices we make affect our lives.
When at times life seems harsh and a bit scary
and it’s so hard to laugh to sing and be merry
when deep down inside you feel ever so lonely
and you say to yourself: “Oh, I wish, Oh, if only . . .”
What if your wish became suddenly true
and you could step out with your hat and your shoes
would you stay in your box and play the blame game
or kindle your spirit with a bright glowing flame?
For my children Asaf and Talia
