A slave, a product, bred
only to produce
My metamorphosis is
egg, larvae, pupa, dead

No wings, no skin to ever shed
I am incomplete
Day and night
I keep spinning my thread

In my dreams, my wings are spread
I rest peacefully
on a flower bed
And behind me is a cocoon shread
Silk production is awful, but so are the lives of many people around the world. In some countries, life expectancy is lower than 30 years, and child labour cause many children to loose their precious childhood. They can only dream of what we have - the opportunity to complete the metamorphosis and have a life consisting of childhood, teenage years, adulthood and eventually the last phase of grandma/grandpahood.

When I learned how silk was produced, I was horrified.
