.. And That’s how every “Butterfly” is born
When tears are burning;
blood is freezing;
heart is crying;
brain is bleeding;
breaths are choking now and then.
When ears are echoing;
tongue is parching;
skin is shedding;
fingers are shaking;
and the whole body is dying off.
Come on dear, butterfly!
Stretch yourself a bit more;
believe in yourself a bit more;
love yourself a bit more;
hold your head high a bit more.
People may insult you;
judge you;
criticize you;
and finally leave you
for no reason of your heart.
Let them be there
where they want to live;
Don’t look back
and make them realize
what they have lost;
Your life is not finished
but to be started afresh.
Very soon you are going to
flutter your wings;
live your dreams;
fly high;
and surely will reach up to the sky.
Getting transformed
from a seed into a huge tree;
a caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly
your life is leading
a painful phase; worth to face.
For you it is so strange;
but I’m sure you will enjoy the change.
