The journey of self love

She was like the caterpillar
a silent warrior
fighting her way through her cocoon
a battle she must win
as she alone must walk on this path of self love
she alone must fight for the change that will define her very existence
she alone must become the butterfly that she was meant to be

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of my title?
How was my language use?
How was the beginning/ending of the poem?
Is the internal logic consistent?
Editing stage: 


It doesn't apply to everyone.
I should know, i'm not everyone.
Battles are for losers, as Mr Hitler and his like confirm.
Pathetic monsters.

Do it without words
and with a smile
and everyone's happy
running this mile
that'll all be over in a minute
or three
and you'll know not
what there's to be.



keep going. see where this will lead you. Express the inexpressible in this transformation. Share your imagination of the vision of this event. These lines are beautiful....Keep Going!!

I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing
than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance

Thank you
