BUTTERFLIES

 forever on my skin
 a reminder
 a promise
 a hope
 to be transformed
 
on my skin
 rejuvenating
 and sloughing
 drying
 and nourishing
 covering me
 
forever
 living dying
 cycling through
 fear, reality
 strength
 to be again
 
transformed
 by life’s cycle
 the renewing
 of my mind
 a spirit reborn
