Becoming a Butterfly

One day it all become too much for me,

My body said no more,

My mind said stop abusing me,

I had stopped living and I was only acting out the actions,

My heart had become hardened,

My body decided that it refused to play the game any longer,

Everything decided to shut down,

The chrysalis had formed and self-destruction had long begun,

This caterpillar needs to radically change & transform,

A radical transformation took place in the mind and body,

The Monarch Butterfly survived death and resuscitated to begin a new life,

Then she spread her wings and then she glided to the boundless sky full of opportunity.
