Not everything that cocoons
becomes a butterfly.

A butterfly needs to undergo complete metamorphosis
at a cellular level,
each part of it transforming, shifting, changing,
in a delicate process that, if disturbed
can result in death.

People often enter cocoons of their own.

Sometimes it is necessary to cocoon,
to lose old ideas, beliefs, perspectives,
and gain new faculties and sensibilities;
to emerge with new possibilities for life.

But not every caterpillar that enters a cocoon
sprouts the wings it needs to fly.
