STRUGGLE

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
