A caterpillar
Once thought that it would never
Be a butterfly

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

I LOVE it the way you use "caterpillar", using big words in Haiku is difficult, at least to me, but you composed this one PERFECTLY! The inpiration was amazingly carried through. Awesome. After this I want to read all your stuff!!

The title you gave this haiku made your poem so much deeper than it would have been if you had called it just "Catepillar" or "Butterfly". It made me read more into it, not just take the face value. Great job! :D Keep writing!

Inspiring... Nice job! Haiku is a great yet challenging type of poem to write, but you've done a great job! Will you look at my poems. "Fireflies and Stars" and "Lord, You are my Comfort?"

My favorite of your haikus so far. I wouldn't be surprised if this got in the magazine. Five stars!

This really much says many things in few words. I love it. And, yes, sometimes we thought that we couldn't make it! But we could :) if we just believe!
