Luctor et Emergo
If you cut away a chrysalis
or help a bird out of its shell
they will never be able to fly.
the act of striving
to emerge from crystal encasement,
and break apart the walls of your old self
to find your wings
to deprive of struggle
is to deprive of flight
and the creature you are to become
after emerging on the other side
L U C T O R E T E M E R G O
Latin; I struggle and emerge
