STRUGGLE

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
