Shae O'Brien grew up in the Pacific Northwest, and it has bred her to have a love for music, coffee, the ocean, and rain. Her love for writing was planted at a young age, with the encouragement of beautiful family and inspiring teachers, and grew into a passion she cannot go a day without. During the day, Shae is also an English teacher, promoting the art of the written word among the youth of Austin. Her writing has been featured in publications such as Off The Wookie, AIPF Di-verse-city Anthology 2012, and TWENTY: Poems In Memoriam. She recently self-published her first chapbook, "Truths Unspoken", which takes the reader on a poetic journey through the passion, love, heartbreak, and rebirth of a relationship. You may find her on any given night writing or performing her work around Austin, TX.

Little Caterpillar

Little Caterpillar
Say good morning to the sun
She shines kisses on your forehead
As the day has just begun!

Little Caterpillar
Wiggle toward a brand new day
You have so much in the world to learn
In your itty bitty wiggle way!

Little Caterpillar
Don't forget to eat your leaves
Every nibble of nutrition
Gives you strength and energy!

Little Caterpillar
When the sun has gone to bed
Cuddle cozy in a cocoon
And rest your sleepy wiggle head.

Little Caterpillar
A surprise waits soon for you
As you grow and learn and eat and play
There's something else that you will do...

You, Little Caterpillar, will bloom
Into a beautiful butterfly...

...And you will fly!
