It's comfortable in this cocoon
But I must exit very soon
The warm protective chrysalis
Fulfil my metamorphosis

I thought the effort far too great
I did not want to change my state
But Nature has to be obeyed
And soon my splendor is displayed

They try to trap my beauty yet
I must evade the callous net
Becoming a collector's prey
A dead exhibit on display

If one desires a change, one must be that change before that change can take place.
