Like chicks in shells
or caterpillars cocooned
or countless other examples
of life forms transforming
tadpoles to frogs
or life forms that molt…

What are we so terrified of becoming?

It’s not as if we’re all having such fun
the way we’ve been approaching
our breaking free from this …
this… prison of body
this cage of thoughts  & thinking 
this moment of utter confusion
and heartfelt despair.

I’m whispering to the runaway spirits,
the truly spooked.

slow down–
nothing’s going to hurt you–
nothing’s wrong.

Falsehoods are crumbling.

Not the truth.
