Metamorphosis

As seasons change, so do people
A product of peers and society
Entangled in a web designed to stifle advancement
Until you are nothing but a shell of who you once were
Unable to find yourself in the darkness
The ties that bind you, tear into your flesh
Creating wounds that will last years
But yet you persist
And fight against the restraints
Like a butterfly emerging from the chrysalis
You will soar
