TRANSFORMATION (revised and edited)

I cannot see
outside of me.
Somehow, I know I am not free.

This tight brigade
is of lovely jade.
Could this be where I am made?

It is a nest
for me to rest,
so I can grow and be my best.

Then I shall emerge.
Oh, what a surge!
I can show off; if I get the urge.

Everyone will see
a true beauty,
for that is what I am to be.

    GO FOR IT!!! Now this is more like it. No one needs to believe in you. If you believe in yourself you have no limits to what you can accomplish. Vince

    Aah, the metamorphosis of the cacoon to the butterfly us so well described here, but is it for the butterfly that exists in nature or the butterfly that exists in us all? hmmm Love the visual quality of the write and the directness, 1st person. Wonderful to read you again as well and thank you for your great thoughts on my work. Michael
