Transformation (A Poem)

Also featured in Upon Arrival poetry anthology by Eber and Wein Publishing

Lost and broken, the delicate butterfly mossied on

She was once transformed and strong

Once blossomed–

Yet, now she has returned to that caterpillar state

She just wants to cocoon

And hide–wait until the next change

in nature

But no–she must rebuild that broken wing

Rebuild that power

And fly again

Transform again

It won’t be easy

She sees the big eagle and calls to him, “you have your stature”

She sees the lion and calls, “you have your roar”

But she realizes those are all excuses

All she needs; she has inside of herself

She doesn’t need to cocoon–to run or hide

She needs to rebuild and to embrace her power

It is time to transform
