Light and daring it wavers in the night,
Hanging on for dear life with all it's might.
Fierce and carnivorous fauna reach for it's core,
Gripping at it's strands wishing for more.

Deep within a life remains,
Precious soul it so constrains.
Beckoning to be free it feels,
Breaking through its hardened seals.

Falling thru space before my sight,
Spreading it's wings and fleeing in flight.
Flying thru the air and in the moonlight,
Shedding its fears; future strong and bright.

As I look to the skies,
I focus my eyes.
There in the light of the moon,
Lays the cocoon.
