Everyone hopes that after hard times
They will emerge from the cocoon
A beautiful butterfly, full of grace
Resting atop flowers
And dancing through the trees
But what happens if
You emerge from the cocoon
A moth with tattered wings
Still lost and confused
No purpose, no direction
Flitting from light to light
And flame to flame
Getting burned by each one
Is a moth destined to stay a moth?
Or can a moth become a butterfly?
