2017 November Chapbook Challenge: Day 12/ Writer's Digest Poetics Aside -- Poets United
Like the Caterpillar, I have Transformed
the caterpillar transforms from the little worm-like creature
crawling across the garden floor to the fantastic flying creature with beautiful wings
as a butterfly he dances and flits for all to see
settling on flowers drinking nectar like the caterpillar
i have transformed from the young woman i was
to become the woman i am
i have proven to myself by doing it is not necessary
for you to speak for me i am in the studio each day creating
the first hour spent writing the rest of the day i am painting
i can say without hesitation is am an artist i know my worth
all day spent problem-solving finding answers expressing my truth
