Chrysalis

Barely spawned-

I fed on words

Taking all I could

Seasoning them

The bland, the insipid

Them cliches and them stereotypes.

 

Seasoned them

With rebellion and intolerance

Voracious, ever-demanding.

 

The hunger for opinion

Then the necessity to serve it

Tempered with altercation

Garnished inelegantly

With disdain!

 

That liberty to do 

Precisely that, till satiated!

 

Irreverant, devouring

Each click-baited morsel,

Till finally it was time.

 

Insouciant, outraged

Protestor, Rebel –

Even I had to yield

I’d had enough.

 

Clothed in indifference

The helplessness of a witness

To rampant, rampaging rallies of belief.

 

I waited it out. 

 

For I knew, from within,

I’d changed.

I’d grown.

I’d distilled

What I thought I needed.

 

From the rebel –

With an all -encompassing hunger

I emerge –

Wearing those colours

Of insouciance and outrage

Woven into the threads

Of acceptance, of anticipation.

 

Let’s just say

I survived.

  1. As a medley of items merge;;
    a spectrum of colours splurge
    To the pupa a mournful dirge;
    as the butterfly does finally emerge.

    To me it doesn’t look like survival. It is celebration.😊

  2. The Destiny of a chrysalis is to struggle
    But, at what emerges, the mind does boggle
    You survived
    Nay, revived
    And when those winged-words fly, we all ogle!

    I tend to agree with Govind. It is a celebration indeed.
