Lifespan of a Butterfly

Divine Revelation

Such a short life is ours
and somehow
we must transform
into this new creation.

Born a crawling caterpillar,
we are meant to fly,
but first our wings must grow.

We enter our cocoon
where we slowly change
into all we're designed to be.

Once slithering along
the soiled earth,
we become beautiful illustrations
of our maker’s handiwork.
