four years ago,
i was described,
as a butterfly,
coming out of its cacoon.

two years of my life,
before that night,
i slowly lost myself,
the essence of who iam.

i got a tattoo,
of a butterfly,
on my shoulder,
to remind myself,
not to lose myself.

Um, butterflies, from larva to pupae to adult, have a lifespan of about 1-3 years... XD

But seriously, though...It's good that u were described as such i guess. Saying that ur past the time of change and adolesonce (bad spelling) is pretty good. So in a sense, being a butterfly is not all that bad. It's pretty good actually.

Pretty short, but u put meaning in it, even if it seemed pretty personal (and self-explanatory). Good job!

There is power in the pen.

Well Done. Enjoy your tatoo.
