I am like the butterfly..
I crawled on my belly until I could crawl no more,
then I wrapped myself in a coccoon and stay safe inside.
But oh the pain of transformation!
The hidden scars you never see.

You only see that I am like the butterfly.

I stand brave and flex my wings while gently my
colours brighten in the light.

I am like the butterfly.

For all my bravery, I am delicate, even fragile,
and if caught and caged;
I would surely die.

I am like the Butterfly....

I fly far, far, far away,
I fly wherever my heart tells me to go...
no matter how treacherous the path,
in blind faith that I will get where I am going.

Yes, I am like the Butterfly....
