A layer so stern and obdurate

Unfurls and suffuse

Caging your being

Blocking your vision

Pounding heart wants to breathe

For nobody knows what lies beneath

Oh beloved to persevere, resuscitate and burgeon

Shed the exoskeleton

For underneath is trapped your radiance

Moult like a cicada

Sloughing off your integumentary shell

And let Waft slowly your ambrosial smell

Jealously, hatred, ego

Selfishness, arrogance and what not

Shields you from life’s lives

Activate your peptide-mediated signaling cascade

Rise to leave behind the exuviae

Create and live a new movie

Surely, your revived cuticle will appear timid

But constant adherence and patience

Shall yield a new Instar

To again harden but this time to let the gentle fresh air flow in

Timely ecdysis is the key to keep you afloat

No one can ever stop your happy sailing boat.

Oh habeebity!! I loved coming upon this poem..I have been waiting to read you.. What a perfectly beautiful proclamation on shedding the old and allowing the new to push through. I love this word (it was new for me “ecdysis” )and it the perfect word,when it comes to our growth as human beings
and as fellow souls on this earth. “Create and live a new movie” Oh habeebity, this is the secret…we can refashion ourselves, Alhamdulillah, to be more positive, happy, compassionate, creative…We have this power. To slough off the old and begin brand new ( like in Hajj) is a gift for us all. no matter what we believe,. This poem felt very inspired UM Anzar and your message came through loud and clear.. Just beautifully done my dear friend….
Jazakallah habeebityπŸ™β€οΈπŸ€—πŸŒŸ

Beautiful picture of the lady coverd with one of her eyes. Meaning of acdysis is the removing the layers and clear the part. In life also if you r covered by layers of greed..hatred..jealousy and many more then you will loose your peace and happiness. Nice poem. Liked it. β€πŸ˜šπŸ‘

Your words were so captivating and meaningful.

love the whole poem and these lines said it all:

“Pounding heart wants to breathe

For nobody knows what lies beneath

Oh beloved to persevere, resuscitate and burgeon

Shed the exoskeleton

For underneath is trapped your radiance
