poem ~ the results of pressure

I know you are going 
through a difficult time too, 
But what if you remembered
it's part of the process of making a beautiful you?

What if you changed 
your perspective of pressure, 
And saw the results 
as added benefits to measure?

When you glance around at life
and review the things that you see,
Like the butterflies that come 
from a caterpillar pod up in the tree.

You can't help but reflect
on all the changes and effects, 
That come from the process 
from being a cocoon in a nest.

What if you stayed there all scarred
as to what you would be,
If you shed the comfy pod
surrounding your body?

Would you wanna stay there
wrapped all in a pod,
Or would you wanna be more
beautiful and vibrant abroad?

Yet the beauty that comes
when we give into the pressure,
Is one that produces 
so many experiences in the future.

So no matter if you are
a diamond or a pearl,
Remember that there's more 
when there's pressure to the core.

Don't stay stuck
looking at this view, 
When you can be transformed
into something brand new.
