    Butterfly

    I realize that I could never be a butterfly
    If I stay wrapped up in my cocoon
    And that’s what I have been doing
    Convincing myself that I would come out soon

    Wrapped up from the world in my secret hiding place
    It was my security blanket where I knew that I was safe

    Inside myself is where I found my strength
    I had been hiding out for so long
    And it's finally time that I come out
    I want the world to see that now I’m strong

    I just needed to struggle in order to be free
    And I’m grateful that you were patient enough to wait for me

    Finally I’m willing to sacrifice who I am
    For who it is that I want to become
    So say so long to the caterpillar
    For my butterfly journey has begun

    I’m ready to spread my wings to fly and be free
    I’m ready to release the butterfly that lives inside of me

    I loved every aspect of this. The rhyme scheme, the beautiful image of the butterfly, the concept, and the message that if you struggle hard enough, you finally get the courage to fly. Awesome write!!!

    I believe I can FLY

    I loved this piece ... I could picture the butterfly breaking out and flying freely ... After working all day it's hard to feel free but that one der gives me hope that one day hopefully soon I will take flight and fly away from my bondage and actually live life unstead vs just trying to make it through to the next day.. Thanks
