The Egg Cracked

Curled in my acquired shell
I was content

Life was good
Life was predictable
Life was peaceful
Little did I know...

Inklings appeared
Rumors of more
Dissatisfactions arose

Friendly confines became confinement
Protective barriers...constricting bands
Camelot caved

My soul longed to cross party line
Escape assumptions
Explore ascension

Head banging eventually ceased
Ending with a CRACK!
Shaft of light appeared
I peeped out, ushering in
Second birth.
