The Butterfly that Danced Under the Sun

The butterfly was afraid to spread its wings for the first time,

For it had long forgotten what freedom felt like.

Wrapped in a cocoon and hanging for what seemed like forever.

Counting the days till it would be strong enough,

to break the walls that held it back.

From the world that was full of light.

But now that the time had come,

It thought twice about revealing its wings that were a royal blue.

Thinking about how it would be admired by all those that set their eyes on it.

Being held in different hands, even though

All that it really wanted to do,

is to sit on that one flower that had been its companion since the start.

When it looked nothing close to beautiful.

When it had nothing much to offer.

When all that it could do was crawl to places that were nearby.

Now, it had the power to fly.

It could go wherever it wished to.

Limits had been redefined.

A new life stood before it.

One that it had always dreamed of.

Yet, ironically, it was now in doubt.

Was that really what would lead it to happiness?

Time was limited, it knew.

And destiny worked in mysterious ways.

Even though it seemed so hard,

the butterfly knew that it must embrace this new beginning.

For it was always meant to be just this.

A magnificent little creature that fluttered around,

giving all its admirers a memory.

And in return, it knew that it wouldn’t get much.

But then, that was its purpose.

To spread joy. To dance under the sun. To make the world a beautiful place.

And so, it decided to take the leap.

All within the blink of an eye.

I saw it spread its giant wings and bravely choose to fly…

Chances and Choices

11

 

Sometimes it’s all about making the right choice.

Choosing between having the chance to get everything and taking that risk of losing it all.

Trusting yourself and believing that things will fall in place in the end.

Thinking it through once and then re-thinking it all over again.

Worrying a lot at the beginning and finally learning how to face it one step at a time.

Holding on to all that you care about, but at the same time letting go.

To see how much of it finds its way back to you.

 

Sometimes it’s important to face the storm.

To survive it and celebrate your win.

To forget who you were.

To envision all that you can be.

Because you’re getting stronger.

With each day that passes by.

 

Sometimes you just have to keep going.

Not listen to those voices in your head.

The ones that tell you to stop.

Holding you back from taking that leap of faith.

 

Because its everything that you’ve dreamed of having.

Everything that you really want now.

It’s waiting there.

On the other side of that dilemma.

 

Between winning and losing.

Between doubting and trusting.

Between holding on and letting go.

 

So, make that choice. Take that risk.

And gamble.

Because it might be your only chance.

Because it might be the right choice.

Because it might just be what you really need.

And end up changing your life, forever….
