just when the caterpillar thought that life was over,
it became
a BUTTERFLY!

Even I can be creative at times


Trying,

Struggling,

To spread your wings wide 
When what you really want is to stay in your cocoon and hide

Hide from the hurt,

Hide from the pain,

Knowing all the while it would only be in vain…
The butterfly knows it cannot hide,

Least not forever, from the world outside

She has a great deal of beauty to share, too much to keep within

So if she lands on your shoulder don’t just brush her aside

Rather try and understand all the fear she holds inside

Fear of people, places, and things you may never know

Just love her for who she is, and help her to grow
