I was once considered an aberration

Flicked off, even stomped on

Fortunately, I was small enough to avoid the brunt 

Nothing I did provoked this

I was simply living my life

But, I always yearned for something better

Felt I deserved a fair cut.

And, as fate would have it

I WAS destined for more!

A switch, a change into something more accepted


As I emerge from my cocoon

I feel springโ€™s crispness.

Now, when I spread my new wings

You eagerly hold out your hand

But, I am still the same caterpillar you flicked off before

Inspired by the word prompts,




Better, Crisp, Cut





Word of the day challenge;
