We fear that transformation
will change us forever
yet intrinsically a butterfly
is still made of caterpillar cells
and has memories of days
before it could fly

Sometimes a shift is brutal and fast
other times change starts in the east
a golden orb of dawning awareness
a moment where darkness turns to light
a millisecond where night surrenders
and day slowly and quietly stretches
rises to draw back the curtains and
dilutes the shadows of the past

This gentle awakening where the truth
emerges that you will survive love
that you will outlive loss
that you will stand unchanged
yet changed forever
unfolded
the core of you the same
the experiences different and
the arc of your emotions fully lived
and you know that this is exactly
the way the pilgrimage across your
life was meant to be
