- What Matters
i was a catapillar still making its cocoon.
from birth to not to long ago.
but it took events from then to hide finish the cocoon,
i was trapped and not know what was to happen,
was i to live thru the transformation or not?
not knowing what was to happen next
but i finally opened my eyes to the light,
like arrows from heaven piercing my heart.
but what have i opened my eyes to?
what is this light?
life. being happy.
not having a care in the world.
to just make me happy, then worry about everyone else.
not have this mask everyone wants me to have.
remembering what i did and how i am now.
how i got here.
but not to let it get the best of me.
i have these wings now.
no longer restricted my the prison i made myself.
ive taken it off and i am now free.
but i need time,
i need to learn to fly with these fragile wings,
these wings that have given me hope,
a chance, and a new start.
i cannot go back into that cocoon,
nature will not let me.
i do not want to go back into it,
i am content where i am.
but i do not need to hide anymore,
i am with the ones of my kind.
the kind that have will help me learn to use this new start,
and make it the best life it can be.
