Eyes closed, eyes wide open.

Whilst your eyes were closed and you lay locked inside your own world,
I grew.
Whilst your eyes were closed,
I found strength,
in my own words,
In my own thoughts,
In my very own hands.
Whilst your eyes were closed,
Mine opened to the world around me,
I saw paths, i never believed I could walk,
i walked them anyway.
Whilst your eyes were closed,
i grew wings, like the peacock butterfly,
I transformed, i grew, more beautiful by the day.
As you lay with your eyes closed, choosing not to see me,
I broke free.
