Inside the Chrysalis

broken down natural course
we’re all the same
in the beginning; insects
crawling, barren,
hoping to emerge
with wings.

dis-assembled and
completely re-modeled
inside the chrysalis
we control the outcome

wrapped in cocoons
self made protection
claiming false desires
aspirations of greatness
only to emerge
uglier than before.

disected and
completely re-structured
inside the chrysalis
alone and undone

nature supplies the way
we find the will
one chance to live
a beautiful life
inside the chrysalis
most become moths;
all learn to fly
we contol the outcome
with the beauty
inside.
