Unhatched skin of beauty and grace
Alive and growing inside of me
Speckled specifically of what I will be
Inside and out.
Nature’s delicate shell will keep me safe and let me grow
As the outside world will try to crack the inner shell of me
and wither away what I am all about.
But the strength I gain for fighting to be
Alive and free
Blessed to perch upon the table
To take and give what I can
From nature’s hatched beauty and grace
