A shiny lock
Numbers written around the edge in a circle
I watch as it turns
Back and forth
The numbers blend together
Amd I get confused and lost
No longer sure how to unlock it

I continue to turn it
And back the other direction

And just when I thought
All hope was lost
It clicked into place
And the lock opened

But was it locked for a reason?
Should I have opened it?
I hope
With all these locks
That it wasn't Pandora's Box.
