Your laugh and smiles
Distract me from your tears
You look to beer and wine
To mask all your fears.
You murmur when you talk
Shrouding your uncertainty
There’s a twitch in your walk
Suggesting some anxiety.
You hide in a cocoon
Fearing criticism from the world, fool.
This starts the transformation new
That makes you noticeable, one of a few.
You see, all your virtues had come to hide
In the fear that puts a twitch in your stride
But ever since you built a wall around yourself
You’ve stopped needing the world’s care and help.
You thought earlier, you were a worm
And had now transformed after a term.
But this is where you are wrong
You have been a butterfly all along.
The cocoon just helped you find
The pride in yourself, strength of your mind.
And now that you know your own self worth
You spread your wings and leave the Earth.
