Metamorphosis

Inspired by the comments of my friend John Rhinem : Once broken and battered, love's never the same It is what it is, there's no one to blame In every life, there comes some pain The task to grow and love again Climbing into a shell of self pity and doubt Convinced to always live without The larvae trapped within its cocoon changes and grows by the light of the moon By the warmth of the sunlight, a crack appears New life emerging, shedding its tears Slowly it stretches, spreads delicate wings colors so vibrant, it flutters and sings With grace and beauty, it takes to the air Willing to love, ready to care The old life long gone, pricked by the thorn Now truly is new, fresh and reborn So much beauty and strength, freedom at last The Phoenix has risen up from the ash

Terrific write Walter, thanks for sharing. I like the imagery and the personification in this write. Nice flow, good rhyme and meter, enjoyable to read and a continuity of theme and story. And, to top it off, I love the title you choose for this write. Thanks for sharing. Joe
