feeling sensitive
feeling delicate
feeling as if
things will complicate

a need for a shield
unwillingness to yield
a sturdy outer cover
go ahead, grow and wield

a wall, a fortress
a damsel in distress?
a silk cocoon
a comfort zone, no less

the rose has its thorns
who'd dare leave her scorned?
in this world, I was born
to take that bull by the horns!

Antoine de Saint Exupery said
The caterpillars you must endure
If you want to get acquainted
with butterflies in the future
