Don’t float around
on emotional wings,
and fail to lay
a foundation for things.
Wanting dreams to come true
without any real effort,
intentions focused on the fantasy
to which the mind always diverts.
Sandcastles built on the shoreline,
All soon wash out to sea,
Likewise those opportunities
Now lost from sight, turned memories.
Learn how caterpillar turns butterfly
Rising from its dark cocoon,
Evolving through life’s rhythm,
Paced to its own tune.
