I wonder if it hurts

To become a butterfly

To go from a being of the ground to one made for the sky

But as if that pain wasn’t enough

To then endure the task of breaking the cocoon

Coming out of its shell

It’s so much work to become a butterfly, so much to endure

But oh how beautiful you are

One thought on “Butterfly

  1. This poem makes me think of what Pastor Cathy told me monday “The power is not in the Call, it’s in the answer to the call.” It’s in us choosing to answer the call. A butterfly is free and beautiful however it goes through struggles and a big transformation to become what its meant to be…. very delightful poem.
