Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis

A Poem by A.Lee

I am a tiny, ugly, nothing
Each day is just another fight
Trying not to be consumed
By all the pain and hurt of life

I'm facing millions of new battles
Each one stronger than myself
It's hopeless to think I'll overcome
They should have trusted someone else

Soon enough they'll come to see
I'm nothing but a big mistake
There's no way I'll reach the top
I die with every step I take

So I am giving up for good
Wrap myself tight in a safe cocoon
Where nothing bad can ever reach me
I've succumbed to this fateful gloom

But you keep calling from the outside
Begging me to rise again
Your voice infiltrates my enclosure
Why won't you let me just give in?

But soon your prodding gets to me
And with a sigh, I do oblige
But if I fall again (and I will)
Then you can kiss it all good-bye

I built my prison all too well
I have to fight just to escape
But as I finally do emerge
A brand new me starts to take shape

I'm startled as I start to glow
Testing new wings colored bright
As I take off, I hear you whisper
"See, I just knew someday she'd fly!"

I like the way this poem starts out gloomy and ends with a new beginning, a poem of hope in the dark times. I have had dark times and I remember how it felt so safe to stay behind my walls to heal and how difficult it is to emerge out into the world again. Your poem brings memories to me and I feel in your poem a hope for the future. Thank you for sharing.

My friend,
Like Corey, I'm looking forward to you coming out of the other end of this dark tunnel you're encountering on your journey. Reflective introspect is not always easy, especially when in the process of growing as a person and as a writer. Maybe you should back away from bouncing rhymes together to put an idea in place and just write us another short story about how fascinating your mind really is; just a reccomendation.
Nice write, Cat. BZ

as usual this is really good and you are a fabulous writer :] don't you ever give up because you can never be good if you stop trying

Its already started. Can't recognize what's good til we have lived what we believe is not so good. With time that not so good stuff will seem like so much drivel. Its all just a part of IT, and IT is good. Nice job.

We need to find a place to rest and gather our thoughts. Pain teaches us to be stronger. Sometime we need to think and maybe we can find answers and peace.
