Badge of Honor

Badge of Honor

i can’t say i’m proud
but i’m not definitely not ashamed
i wear these scars like a badge
an honor i’ve bestowed upon myself
i wouldn’t encourage others to follow suit
but i will never tell them to hide it either
i don’t brag about my accomplishments
how many
how deep
how much i bled
but i will not hide them behind a facade of make up
long sleeves
or bracelets
i will not pretend it’s wrong
but i won’t tell people it’s right
i will not feel shame
i’m sick
i can and will admit that

The Emergence of a Butterfly and a Person

The Emergence of a Butterfly and a Person

Believe it or not the emergence of a butterfly is very similar to the personalities of humans and the stages of growth that a human undergoes, and I’m not talking about the growth of a person physically but the growth of a person mentally. A caterpillar begins from a “larval form of a member of the order Lepidoptera”- now what does that mean? To tell you the truth I’m not sure and I will continue to question it. It’s the ‘which came first the chicken or the egg’ debate all over again!Caterpillars have really caught my attention now that I have truly looked at them and read about them.
