Just look at a butterfly to understand the mystery of suffering
A butterfly, imprisoned in a cocoon
looks pitiful as it struggles to get free.
Don’t give in to a misplaced sense of empathy.
you feel sorry for a butterfly’s pain and
cut the cocoon
to help him escape,
a butterfly to struggle,
slowly and agonizingly from his prison,
he will emerge
with perfectly formed wings.
He will be beautiful.
