Metamorphosis

Once a hungry caterpillar,
now a freshly morphed butterfly,
opening up my wings for the first time,

something to be said about this moment,
the moment before I take flight,


thank you ground for all you taught me,
you held on to me so tight,

you gave me foundation, and knowledge, that
I’ll always have,

I used to crawl before,
then I learned how to fly,

I’ll come back and visit sometimes, I’m sure,
because I’ll always need a place to land!
