Cocoon

Insignificant, suppressed
I hid away in my shell
of emancipation

and emerged.

  1. I love the contrasting ideas here:

    "hid away in my shell
    of emancipation

    and emerged"

    There is certainly some sort of freedom or at least protection in encasement. Yet emergence is an inevitability.

    1. It is not strictly haiku but I love the training not to use any more words than necessary.
