Metamorphosis

They said I was small, unworthy and selfish,

And I took those words as if they belonged.

Who was I to shine my light?

To be… and smile… and dream.

🦋

Somehow those inconsequential words gained power,

burrowing into the crevices of my self-worth.

Years went by, passing like rain.

Until you.

🦋

“Your beautiful,” you said.

And I barely dared to believe.

How would you know?

🦋

“You are worthy,” you said.

And the unexpected truth

breathed a new life into my soul.

🦋

I consecrated into me

the new truth, bit by bit,

mile by painful mile.

🦋

The new truth of self-worth

wove into the genome of my soul,

into the fabric of my DNA.

🦋

Unfettered self-love birthed

a new being of metamorphosis

embodied by the divinity within.

🦋

And I was made anew, stretching

out new membranes and multicolored

scales transformed into higher consciousness.

🦋

Bursting free, floating on translucent

wings, forged of strength and perseverance,

upon light waves of love and undiluted truths.

🦋

Now I say, I am powerful, worthy, and abundant.

I lay claim to these words, for

I am here to shine my light.

To be… and smile… and dream.

Thank you for reading!
