Escaping the Cocoon

The night is cold

trees blowing in the brisk wind

my cocoon is tight

time for the solitude to end

Upon awakening

as the sun begins to rise

overcoming obstacles

determined to survive

Now in the open

succeeding in my release

determined to persevere

and defeat the beast

Arms wide open

basking in the morning dew

following the bright light

glimmering sun on the lake is quite new

Joining other wildlife

raising my voice in song

rejoicing in life

for however long

Spirit rising

soaring to make others glow

over the horizon

where life continues to grow
