Metamorphosis

Creeping
Crawling
Slowly moving
Along the ground
Up the trunk
Out on the branch
Onto the leaf
Food to eat
Bound to the branch
So as not to fall
Encumbered by this world
A slow but steady life

Spinning
Weaving
Slowly surrounding
Strong cord attached
Hanging from that branch
Encased in the cocoon
Waiting in the tomb
Bound to the branch
So as not to fall
Encumbered by itself
Waiting
Waiting

Opening
Revealing
Glorious beauty
Wings of flight
Emerge from the cocoon
Flying high for all to see
Landing on the leaf
Free from the branch
No more bound
Unencumbered
New life
Freedom

Trying
Yearning
Our souls cry out
Desiring freedom from sin
From our wicked ways
Christ crawls on the cross
He enters the tomb
He arises anew
Bringing new life in His wings
No more bound to sin
We are free to soar
Free from sin
Free forevermore
