Favorite Quote:
According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four legs, four arms and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them apart, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other half.

The cracking of the cocoon
Initiates a new life.
No longer protected
Through the cracked glass.

The shell flies away
Support secretes from the shell.
Numbers are added to our chart
Understanding more and more.

The glass has mended itself,
And the butterfly has shown its ability.
Fully blossomed now,
Ready for the colors of the meadow.

But the hands of time have just run out,
The glass was shattered.
Putting the shell into the ground,
Just like the last.

The author's comments:
I originally wrote this about how us as humans learn about the truth. As we grow up, we realize that life isn't fun and games as it once used to be.
