Cocoon of the Mind

Samuel Malik Canty: the Word Bird. I am the author of Five Poetry Books, I understand my Purpose, and my words are my proof...


I Have Watched You Look at Yourself with One Eye...

An Eye that doesn’t give you the credit that someone so beautiful as you deserves.

An Eye that is filled with immense pride but still feel empty inside.

You are the most unassuming flower I have ever seen, surely you are a Queen.

Your modesty is to be commended, capturing a Rare Treasure like you is highly recommended.

You Are Going Through A Stage.

A stage where the Real you is Hidden by the Worried you.

A stage that is the beginning stage for your Rebirth from Previous hurts.

I have seen you wrap yourself tightly in your cocoon...Peeping out occasionally hoping no one sees your Private Misery.

I have seen you try to hide the tears from your sensitive eyes as you battle for control of your health.

I look forward towards your Coming-Out-Party, where the flower within gets a chance to shine again.

Get a chance to strut your stuff for your Time Has Come.

In the cocoon is where you wait and anticipate a better day, better health, renewal of strength.

Wait until you shed the dead skin and start living again.

As you wait don’t lose faith your day is coming and I want to be one of the first to congratulate you on your new attitude, new strength, new confidence.

In the Cocoon Is Where You Now Reside Soon You Will No Longer Have To Hide.
