Written by Jacob Ibrag
Close your eyes, scatter away into your mind.
Become your own architect. Brick by brick, don’t
build yourself up again. The opposite. Tear down your
old foundation. Grab a shard and stare at your fractured
reflection. Now look past the person in the mirror. Become
the caterpillar that sacrifices its bare back so untried wings
can erupt from its skin. Breathe for the promise of flight and
allow it to keep you alive. Internalize yesterdays life and never
forget the path that brought you towards your need to strive.
Open those untrained eyes and forgive those that have yet
to sacrifice. They don’t know what you know, and that’s
alright. Metamorphosis will engulf each of them. No
one remains anonymous unless they’re seven feet
deep sheltered forever in a wasteland.
