hope for the flowers ...


I reread this book which I've read two times in the past. Once when I was in Grade 5 and I hated it. I thought it was a story about two worms and that was it. The second time I read it was when I was in 3rd year college. This time, I loved it. I could relate to what was happening and I understood that yes, it was a story about two worms but at the same time, it was the story of us ... of you and me. It is a story of all of us.

And because of this ... I was able to create a poem. Here it is.

I wish I could be a butterfly
free to roam around
free to fly around
to go where I want to be
to be who I want to be.

But I remain a worm

crawling
slinking on the ground
ready to be crushed.
