You can’t talk butterfly language to Caterpillar people

You can’t talk butterfly language to Caterpillar people

There is a weird moment when you have realised you have changed,

Its a happy feeling but also sad as well…

Because when you’re talking to the people closest to you they will tell you to shut up or stop going on about that thing again.

And you have that lightbulb moment like ‘Ah I have changed’
Byt then you have that moment of ‘Ah I don’t fit in with these people anymore’

And those people could be your partners, family, friends etc

And you have to either move on or suppress yourself around them.

But sometimes growth requires you to leave things behind.

It’s sad but if you wanna be the butterfly you have to leave behind the caterpillars.

Metamorphosis

So your sad but why, coz you can’t fly
You feel stuck on the ground like your trapped in an impound
So your sad but why, coz you can’t fly

Yeah life isn’t always pretty
Sometimes we’ve got to get gritty
It feels like we’re not getting very far
Where are these wings, why can’t I sing
Damn I wish life would bring me some fortune

Don’t worry though, there is no hurry
Embrace the grind, you never know what you may find,
Don’t let social media blind you,
You are beautiful don’t you know

This process you are going through is amazing,
One day your looks will be blazing
Just call this phase the grazing days,
Relax and let the process begin
And remember beauty comes first from within

This is metamorphosis you are butterfly,
One day you will fly, sky high,
But stand by, I don’t want to petrify you
But metamorphosis is what you have to go through,
You see a caterpillar doesn’t get to sit in a villa, it has to work to gather strength from within, It doesn’t seem to travel very far to begin with,

Then it becomes the pupa, stuck in one spot, where on the outside it looks like there is not a lot going on but underneath the shield, its beauty is being wielded,

Transformation happens when no one else can see, not even you, but do you know what happens if you get through…
Well your gonna experience life from a whole nother view

So your sad but why, coz you can’t fly
You feel stuck on the ground like your trapped in an impound
So your sad but why, coz you can’t fly

Don’t you know that you’re a butterfly
