Conversation with a Butterfly

Hello Mr. Butterfly, newly emerged from your cocoon.
I am happy to see you survived your metamorphosis.
I have a few questions for you.

Was it scary there alone in the dark as you felt yourself changing day by day?
Did you know what you would one day become?
Did you wish you could have always stayed the same?
Or did you know one day you would grow wings all your own?
And that you would explore gardens in a whole new light?
Did you know the beauty that would emerge from your caterpillar's casket?
You are a brave little soul my butterfly friend. 
You went into the dark, dying as one thing and emerging reborn as another.
The new you is a thing of beauty. 
Now go be brave my little friend.
Fly.
Go share what you have become with all the world around you.
Have faith in those beautiful new wings of yours.
Fly!
