Friends May Lament   1 comment

I am who I am
and always will be

becoming.

Knowing who I am
frees me to reinvent

my being.

Like the caterpillar
friends may lament

when it becomes a butterfly. 

Nothing in me
told them what I was

to become.

Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities.
The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence.

– – Albert Einstein
