Here is my entry into James and Oneg's final summer writing challenge: The Break Out Of Your Cocoon Challenge!

Here is the prompt: "Butterfly poems are a genre of poetry that use the butterfly as a symbol or metaphor to explore themes such as transformation, growth, beauty, and the fleeting nature of life. Write one."

Here is a link to all of the challenges from the 2023 Summer Writing Challenge Extravaganza! Feel free to join in. I'm tagging anyone who is interested! There is no deadline!

Here is my Break Out of Your Cocoon poem entitled: ~~~~Faith Transformed~~~~!


Reading Rainbow...

reminded me...

that I could...

go twice as high...

as a Butterfly in the sky...


The WORD taught me the reason why...



I am...






with the strength to endure...


equipped with HIS might...


to successfully win the fight...


Then... one fine day...

things went from...

intangible to real...

for it was the day...

that I first felt The Creator heal...


Eventually, my Faith...


from putty into stone..

when I learned that I wasn't alone...


It was then...

that I shed...

my useless cocoon of anxiety sandwiched with doubt...

and embraced HIS plan for my life...

minus the clout...


A divinely-equipped butterfly I finally became...

My purpose and trajectory

never the same...
