Life is like a small larva securely enclosed within a cocoon
Nurtured and growing, secure from all that lies without
Innocence intact, the essence of naiveté
An intimate connection with the Sacred Mother
The larva grows safely within this orb of life
No facades, no false ideals
Just the existence of being
The joy of development
In time the cocoon splits open
And out emerges a creature of beauty
So splendid in its many hued colors
An example of life in its purest form
But then a terrible thing happens
This lovely creature is exposed to the travails of this existence
Does its pureness and beauty prevail?
Alas it is overwhelmed
Its natural sense of love is shaken by the intrusive emotions of
Its sense of safety is dwarfed by feelings of fear and panic
Its sense of love is battered by the feelings of hatred and rage all
Its sense of security is offset by the grim realities of this realm
There is an intense desire to return to the safety of the cocoon
What started out as the desire of the Goddess is now chaotic
What was seen as love and beauty is now revealed as ugly and dangerous
When did the design of our Mother end and the passions of man begin?
Can this creature of beauty ever find the world that it seeks?
A world where the love of our Sacred Mother prevails
A world where the travesties of man is but a dim and bitter memory
A world where sanity once again reigns supreme
Or is the beauty of birth to be ever marred by the realities of life
Man has created this madness, and man can change it
Spirituality is the lamp by which we seek the light
But is man willing to strike the match of change?
Or is the butterfly forever doomed to be born in all of its glory
Only to be thrust into the darkness of humankind
Its beauty ever so fleeting
Its sense of purity but a brief moment in life
