In a Moment

By Danica, Avondale, AZ

It takes but a moment for emotions to change
confidence to fail
pleasure to be replaced by pain.

Yesterday joy sparkled in your eyes like crystals
conviction supplied your soul with strength.
With open wings you soared through both sun and rain
but today in your cocoon you remain, unable to fly the extra length.

In a moment you traveled through life backwards
beginning as the butterfly, then shutting yourself in the cocoon.
What happened to your conviction, your strength?
The crystals in your eyes now melt down your cheeks, joy crushed like a deflated balloon.

It takes but a moment for emotions to change
