Maybe I’m Doing Okay | Anne Marie Wells Poetry

Photo by Phakphoom Srinorajan on Unsplash

I reincarnate while still
alive. I’ve already been forced
into new fates from the mistakes
I made. Each rebirth I hope
to bloom from my straitjacket
cocoon, but maybe I will never
be a butterfly if I’ve been a hermit
crab moving this whole time
into bigger and bigger homes.
And while I’ve hoped for wings
to show, I haven’t noticed
how much I’ve grown.




Anne Marie Wells’s poetry published in literary journals and magazines both online and in print.
