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


is necessary

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
