September 16, 2013

Hello everyone. This letter will be pretty short, so don't take it personal. The week was good, and I am still living. I hope my driving habits will stay legal when I get home =P circumstances. . .

I have thought a bit this week, among other things, about insects. A caterpillar will, when prompted to do so by nature, spin a cocoon in which it will change.


  1. (in an insect or amphibian) The process of transformation from an immature form to an adult form in two or more distinct stages.
  2. A change of the form or nature of a thing or person into a completely different one, by natural or supernatural means.
I had this come to my mind, so I will share it.

I close my eyes- now darkness prevails
I try to move, but the function fails
I feel the embrace of a well made shell
I wonder what secrets my Maker will tell
From within, I see nothing- but a difference I feel
And oft times I wonder: "Is this truly real?
Am I still myself? The same blood? The same name?
Am I growing and changing, or is this a game?"
The world doesn't know me- it sees not the change
That's happening within me- for now, I am strange
No more will I walk among filth and through grime
Now challenges sought for mountains to climb
The shell starts to weaken- I'm now breaking free
I've become a new creature- I've become a new me
The time is behind me, now lost in the past
The change understood now- emerging at last
I break through the sunlight and breathe in the air
Take flight into new life- astounded I stare
My eyes have been opened- I see what He sees
His work was successful: a Chrysalis for me

Mission is my chrysalis
Start Strong: Finish STRONGER!
