Rebirth

Crack open your ribcage
And let me crawl in
I’m so very lost
Where have I been?

I’ve stuffed me down deep
And I’m just not so sure
That the me on the outside
Is me anymore

My skin feels too small
And my head feels too full
My heart keeps on cracking
With regret’s constant pull

Crack open your ribcage
And let me crawl in
I’m so very tired
Where do I begin?

Let me lay down my head
And curl up in my smallness
Finding my center
The real me to harness

Let the ga-gong of your heartbeat
Cleanse my worn soul
Your thrumming my metronome
As I make myself whole

Would you be my chrysalis
As I slowly transform?
Breaking free from expectation
Becoming my true self, reborn
