Freedom

I visited a butterfly museum once. I was amazed of the colorful exhibit much more when I went inside the butterfly garden. As they released the butterflies they looked liked dancing fairies in the air. Such a beauty to behold.

I am claustrophobic so I know it is very uncomfortable and terrifying in a narrow and dark space. But Is it really worth it? The restlessness, impatience and pain as it underwent metamorphosis. It’s no brainer, the smile you see in peoples’ faces as they marvel at its beauty is priceless. The new found freedom as they discover their wings and that they can fly is worth waiting for. Once in a cocoon, now it is free to fly. The story of every butterfly.
