Metamorphosis ~ A #Poem

This is one of my favourite poems. It expresses how I feel about myself. I change constantly, I develop, I go back into hibernation and come back again to change anew.

I love this image of being alive and developing and the image of the butterfly. I can just hope that it gives you a push to discover new territory too.

Metamorphosis

again and again
my refugee self
seeks shelter
in golden chrysalis

it hibernates
rests
dreams
transforms

blooms into
my authentic soul
forever inclining
to my refugee soul
again
