The chrysalis is worn and wet
And refuses to dry its wings

The tigress finds the cage door open
But is imprisoned by her memories

The newborn gasps involuntarily
And thinks his lungs are burning

The rock skips on water too far
For it has forgotten how to sink

I waver a few moments too long
Unsure of my self worth
