Cocoon 1

Written by: Elly Wouterse

watch the caterpillar 
struggle and build 
creating its cocoon 
to hide 
for a while 
for all the noise 
for all the views 
focusing 
on its own 

take your time 
waiting for a miracle 
doing noting 
or your own 

wait for the butterfly 
coming out 
and fly 

watch 
you’ll know 
and why
