What Would a Caterpillar Do?

 

Would it suffer from low self-esteem

 

for not being a butterfly yet?

 

Would it beat itself on the head

 

to go faster, faster, faster?

 

Would it compete with its neighbor

 

and watch its likes on Facebook?

 

Would it  join a How-To-Become-a-Butterfly  support group?

 

And once it’s a butterfly

 

would it envy a sparrow for being bigger

 

or a robin

or an eagle?

 

What would a caterpillar really do?

 

Does it think about how to live in peace

 

or what to do when if it rains?

 

No.

A caterpillar knows just where it’s supposed to go

 

every step of the way.

 

It doesn’t doubt if it’s doing the right thing.

 

it doesn’t pray to become a butterfly;

 

it doesn’t sit and wait either.

 

It doesn’t even want to be a butterfly!

 

It forgets itself and just goes where it wants to go,

 

and is happy in the doing.
