Asleep in her chrysalis, Small and insignificant, She’s waiting, Hesitating, Unsure where she fits in. Her dreams ebb and flow, Gentle and slow; Desire and longing Lie obscured in the mist. She’s safe in this womb, Her cozy cocoon, Where no judgments can drift. But life teems all around: The scents and the sounds, Meter and rhyme forming verses sublime– She breaks free and takes wing. Adrift on a breeze, She spies the nectar she needs; Vast fields of inspiration Fill her heart with elation. Now proud and unafraid, Her emotions are displayed On the outside. No more pseudonyms And no need to hide– She’s finally at peace Inside her own skin.
