A New Perspective

small and curious, inching forward
not always inspired by a certain reason
discovering life’s beauty one day at a time

compared to the world
I am only one caterpillar

living simple is not overrated
just coming to an end soon
only the physical changes will be apparent
but inside will be new as well

neutral colors will fade into shiny gold and pale purple
stretching my new wings
to their fullest limits

inching becomes flying
the radius for travel expands
instead of dodging feet on the ground
I have traded my legs for wings

soaring above eye level
I feel transformed
just…

stronger
colorful
fearless

As I wrote this poem, I was thinking about my future and how going to college next year will be a whole new and different experience.
