Sec 2 poetry assignment - "The Cocoon of Change"

This is Lesley-Anne's third poem for her poetry assignment. It's in the style of "Sheltered Garden" by Hilda Doolittle and the theme is growing up.

The Cocoon of Change

I have had enough

I struggle to break free

I have had enough

Of people holding my hand
when I cross the street
Of people spoon-feeding me
answers that I know aren't true

I have had enough
Of fairy tales and bedtime stories

For I know that in life, an ending
is not always happy

I have had enough

Of this
that suffocates me
The darkness closes in

But I want to see the light of day

I'm a butterfly longing to stretch her wings
