    To Metamorphosize Thy Mind——”


    title: “Imminent Metamorphosis”

    Dedicated in honour of the change of heart, that changes one’s mind, to prioritize the well-being of others over oneself.

    As well as all the little ways that we all continue to improve, as our awareness of the huge impact that even the tiniest choice causes, as our partially purified perception’s clearness increases.

    “Posies & Pansies are pretty & proud—
    But quite sick of being stuck to the ground—
    Cuz they’d prefer to traverse the winds of the world like a cloud: unbound—

    And now, new wings glide the globe, which we’ve come to know as Flutter-Flowers!——”
