The Social Caterpillar This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

The Social Butterfly is
graceful,
elegant,
beautiful.
Everyone loves the
Social Butterfly,
who speaks as
gracefully,
elegantly,
beautifully
as it flies.
But only the select few
love the
Social Caterpillar,
always stumbling over its
words,
never finding the right thing to
say,
trying so hard to be as
graceful,
elegant,
beautiful
as the Social Butterfly
that it forgets to just
be.
