I AM...!

I am the small branch that breaks off

From the broken tree

I am the leaves that gets blown away

By the waves in the sea

Looking for strength and guidance,

I seek-

The help of others;

Though no one is there to help me-

From breaking away.

No one is here to stay.

I am shattered

I am in pain.


I am a caterpillar in a cocoon

Waiting for a miracle to happen soon.

I am a hardcover book-

shielding my pages,

Quiet and judged-

until I open up.
