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

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

A newborn gasps involuntarily
And thinks his lungs are burning

A 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
