Born Perfect ? It ain't possible!

Nadia Bolz Weber's videos and this butterfly I photographed gave me thoughts about how we can love ourselves for not being born or reborn as perfect.


By Rohini Chandra

When life gives a second chance,

The voice of love hushes

The shame of her cocoon,

and awakens the caterpillar.

Reborn from silk darkness,

Resetting her internal compass,

For the great ascent to Mexico

From the Great Lakes.

Carrying the atlas of her future

On her ethereal wings,

She is new to flying

and no where near perfect,

But she is beautifully real.

Her past only moves her forward

Removing the weight of importance,

Fluttering freely and humbly

With purpose and grace.
