Stuff I Wrote (as just a boy) – Vol. 1: Mental Metamorphosis

Tonight I’m starting a new series that I call “Stuff I Wrote When I Was Just a Boy”. I will put the approximate origination date of “publication” at the end. Please let me know what you think…and remember…I was just a boy.

MENTAL METAMORPHOSIS

A caterpillar once content

with life upon the cool cement

now seems anxious and unsure

of how much more it can endure

Enclosing himself till all is dark

the life support a piece of bark

this solitude will be his chance

for inner growth and form expanse

Then once again he sees the light

for transformation gave him flight

a broader horizon than before

the whole of life he now adores

The former world won’t understand

his change calls for no reprimand

’cause though he’s acquired a strange new being

he’s still just a caterpillar with wings.
