Flap Your Beautiful Wings Of Self-Expression Without Validation Or Applause

By Brigid Hopkins

Butterfly Transposed

Can a butterfly be born without a cocoon?

Pain was her house
Shifting
Sifting
Through louse
After louse

No home
From which to be birthed
Evolving
From the inside out
Shedding one rumpled layer
After the next
Unknowingly
Evolving
To her highest
Expression
To fly
Soar
Savor the sweet nectar

Does she still need the cocoon?
Can she bloom
Without the safety
Warmth
Security
Live without the struggle
Of emerging
From her nest

I say yes
Hell yes

Stand in awe as
She flaps her beautiful
Wings of self
Expression
Without need of validation
Or applause

Her flight
Is the peak
That leaves one
Speechless

For more self-study, The Urban Howl recommends Women Who Run with the Wolves.
