the jar is ajar

unkindest of karmas
a girl growing full of curiosity
hidden with the forbidden
just an apple or a sealed vessel
– if worlds tilt on such equations
what hope? yet peppered with the punitive
our speck of salvation
to reach again or uncork the jar

    “a girl growing full of curiosity
    hidden with the forbidden
    just an apple or a sealed vessel
    if worlds tilt on such equations”

    It will unnecessarily limit the initiative and learning experience. It just isn’t fair in the growing years!
