They were both caterpillars, they crawled their way out and kept on changing skins, making it more adaptable to surroundings, Evolving. They both went inside a Cocoon, they both needed to hide from the outside world, they both needed to change and to grow. They both emerged as with wings, ready to fly, all beautiful and Graceful, they both were willing to spread their wings and take a flight to the skies and see what it has to offer. They will both die if you catch them in a net and keep them in a jar. They will wither, they won’t last long in confinement. The story of a woman and a butterfly is not very different, the main difference is one is real delicate, and the other is real strong.

“When Fishing for love, bait with your heart, not your brain.”
― Mark Twain, Notebook
They tell you to keep your silence for life and Abide. They ask obedience, and they seek compliance. You are left with no choice but to heed, to kneel, to accept it all and give your consent. Then all that is left to do is follow and adhere. There is no respect, there is no admiration, all there is left is Fear. Fear will make you tolerate, bear, suffer and endure. Fear will make you put up with it, sit tight, hang in there. It will make you withstand, stomach all the injustice. Do not let them prevail. Do not permit, do not subsist. There is no need to sweat it out, to undergo the suffering. Challenge your fear, contest with yourself. Squash the thing holding you back from rebuttal. You need to debunk anyone making a claim to you, on you, about you. Contradict them, discredit all things said or told. Set yourself free, Breakout !
