The Poet's Own

This is the beginning of the story, 
The poet's own 
That which has never been said, 
The secret of the praying mantis. 
Indeed. 
This is how it all began 
The mystery 
The suspense 
Somewhat strange 
He thought he was only a normal boy, 
That he could go through all the stages 
a normal boy would 
He never thought that 
one day he would be the praying mantis 
Yet he did not only become the praying mantis 
He also became the tortoise, 
The chameleon. 
But all sad 
All weary 
And all disappointed 
That rage 
That love 
That darkness 
In their lives 
Had only the poet been another person.
