its as if one day,
you wake up and open your eyes
for the very first time.

Gone are the days of
sitting idle,
in the encasement
of intertwined weeds;
the unkind words that sprout like
brown grass woven in between your toes.

You open your eyes
and see that the world is yours;
everything under the sun and moon,
everything under the billions of stars,
the tiny seeds of hope and wonder.

Stretch your arms wide,
glowing in the summer sun.
You, like a human butterfly,
have been through a metamorphosis.
Don’t shut your eyes,
the world is yours.
