Then one day, with lots of hard
work and determination,
the cocoon cracked and the Angelic Butterfly emerged
stronger than ever before.
As the wings slowly unfurl, so many dreams,
long forgotten, are beginning to be realized.
As the comfortable fear melts,
and feelings are felt,
the wings are fully expanding to reveal the true beauty.
As the butterfly's beginning
to take flight and
soar to new heights once thought impossible.
With the help of God, and the Angels,
the only way for this butterfly to go
(as all butterflies go)
is up, up, up!
Look out world,
the Angelic Butterfly has arrived!
Cathy A. Wierman writes under
the pen name of Kind Angel. The Angel Butterfly was written as a response
to visiting her father's gravesite in 1995 for the first time since his
death to suicide. She went to forgive him for years of abuse, terror, his
death and her mother's murder. This poem came as a result of that
release. She continues writing poems in her journal and collecting poems
of a spiritual nature, friendship or humor which she often shares with
friends, on her emailing list. Many of these poems are in our archives,
waiting to be added to the site.
For her story of loss, recovery and transformation, see entry # 13 on our Transformation Book
Cathy now refers to herself as The Angelic Butterfly , stating: " I have shed my cocoon and I'm soaring farther, and higher than I ever dared dream. It took a long time to reach this stage, but it was worth it!" Her mission is similar to my own: "If I can help one person I will consider my mission a success!"
