Poem – Caterpillar

You were a caterpillar 

Who climbed the trees to find the best views

As you began to fill yourself

With what you needed

Then you settled down in the right spot

Wrapped yourself in the deep commitment

As time went on, you began to change

But your cocoon could not keep you

For you were meant to fly

You emerge with wet wings

Unable to fly at first

So you eat at what had fallen on the ground

Once your wings were dry 

You soared higher than you could climb

There was no looking back
