    From me to ME: by Shirley Chapman

    From me to ME

    Why was it that I was first a butterfly
    Socially and lingually adept
    Dancing running soaring through life
    Free and easily mingling
    Choices all open
    All mine
    which one shall I have?
    Where should i go next
    Then
    A cruel twist
    A pupa around me
    Reversed after the freedom
    Mummified and crushed
    My wings have disintegrated
    My freedom is no more
    I can hardly move
    My clumsy body
    Restricted and frustrated
    A catterpillar from a Butterfly
    A horrendous twist of fate
    Crawling
    Grounded
    Nothing in sight
    Cumbersome and failing
    This is what I have become
    ME
