Listen………..! I am no longer that caterpillar which most called ugly for now I am a beautiful butterfly! I no longer need or want to stay within the confines of my old cocoon. I’m not ashamed of what I once was for I have gone through my metamorphosis.
It’s still me you see except my pains and my sorrows have not broken me! Every tear I have shed has served to remind me of what I had forgotten. I know now that I have always had these beautiful wings deeply secured within me. Today I can spread my wings out and I can fly.
Many dazzle at the beauty of my colors but you choose to see me only as an ugly caterpillar. You are ashamed of my feelers and you join others in believing that I am nothing but a mere creepy crawling insect but I am not. Do you hear me? I am not and actually I never was.
You can go ahead and run away from me for all I care. You have no idea of the treasures I have hidden within the corners of my old cocoon. And now you shall never know!! Take heed and take notice of my written words.
I am a beautiful butterfly and I can fly!!
Go ahead! Let out a sigh!
Hugs from Brooklyn,
This entry is for those that forget how beautiful they are. You are beautiful and wonderful even if others don’t see it that way. Love yourself! Take care of yourself! Keep shining because self love is not conceit if it comes from truly knowing and appreciating yourself with all your facets. Yes you are a gem!!
