Metamorphosis

I wrote this poem on the first day of the new year. Butterflies are a common symbol of transformation, and they are very special to me. This year I want to work on being authentic and living a new life, which is one reason why I started this blog.

 

A new year welcomes a new life,

A metaphor for metamorphosis

For casting off the old shells and self-imposed hells,

But it won’t happen without conscious action:

Even a caterpillar builds its own chrysalis.
