A Happy Poem

I think I will write happy

I have to move away

From conflicts and repression

Into a brighter day

It’s true I found some words

To express what in me grew

I never wrote without resolve

And yes it helped me through

But underneath the layers

Of all that people see

There is a chrysalis within

That is the real me

The caterpillar won’t grow his own

It sheds it’s skin until

The only thing that’s seen

Is the chrysalis within

A shell is formed around it

To protect while it transforms

The cells break down in secret

Till the butterfly is born

And then emerges beauty

And once it finds it’s wings

It never does look back

To yearn for former things

Each one is at a different stage

So patient we must be

Until the layers are stripped away

And all that’s left to see

Is the shell that’s so protecting

As God performs His plan

Of creating a beautiful butterfly

That will never leave His hand

    Birds eat butterflies you know. Next time be a warty frog. Nobody eats them. 🙂
