A Metamorphosis

A little creepy caterpillar

Crawls free from its egg

It has no purpose in being

No great goal to accomplish

That will help save the world

From some danger or strife

The caterpillar eats

Leaf after leaf

Nothing on its mind but food

Food to make it grow

Food to make it big and fat

Food to give it strength to transform



A caterpillar knows that its current form

Is not its destiny. No indeed

For when it spins its chrysalis,

Green and concealing, there is

A change happening just out of sight



Inside its case, the caterpillar

Is gone, as if it never existed.

Its little crawly body has vanished

Disintegrated into little more than goop

But the imaginals

Waiting inside the caterpillar soup

Grow a new creature

The lovely butterfly!



My innocence has left me

From my childhood as I grow

Ever taller, ever wiser

Ever older, ever better

After a terrible trial

After the smoke clears

And ashes settle

I do not rise as a Phoenix

Alive again but exactly the same

I hatch as a caterpillar

From their long sleep

Inside the chrysalis



The pain is hard, the struggles

Unending and ever tough

I was born as a little green worm with feet

Devouring the good things around me

Growing in body, mind, heart, and soul

But it was the hardships I survived through,

Fires that left nothing but the potential

Those tiny imaginals that knew,

What I could be,

At my greatest and strongest,

That my beautiful new form came from



The old me has died.

Remembered but gone

For I am reborn, a child fully grown

With brilliant wings to soar



A caterpillar consumes

But a butterfly changes

The world around her

Causing flowers to become fruit

Inspiring others to create and make more

Of themselves and what they have

Giving beauty to a desolate world

That might have existed without them



The change is real

The change is permanent

But it is not to be lamented

For what was new is new again

Remade into a new being

That is ready to rattle the stars

With things only it can do

2jlynn: Love this series! The action, suspense, the chemistry of those in the MC makes this series flow. Am eager to read the next book, but know the sooner I complete a book the sooner the series ends. Not thrilled with this ending, but have no doubt this series will be read a couple times!

Annie Kay: The dirt bag behavior with Marcus and erica was annoying and this story was amazing. The relationship development wasn't over time but more over rushed at the end and erica should have lost her relationship with Marcus when he started to be kind to his wife. It was a good story.

2jlynn: Cannot imagine all that went on in Annalisa had going on in her life the past 2 years... then to top it off with her dad stepping in taking care of everything her an Eagle would need yet expecting nothing in return. Yes, it's a book, but nothing can stop the dreaming.

Deloris McCoy: I’m so enjoying this book. I love the serious side of the characters along with the sorrows, like being in an average everyday life. Also showing the funny side of them. Makes for a good read and not boring.
