Trapped In My Cocoon


Just a caterpillar
In the blazing sun
Inching forward
Until the day is done

Hungry for more in life
I eat my way through each day
Through happiness and sadness
Through struggles and play

I like the sweeter things I find
The love, the lust, the joy
The laughter, the smiles, the good
These are the things I most enjoy

But I'm met with colder weather
And the sweet things are hard to find
I search high and low
Keeping springtime in mind

I see morsels that look good
And I must take a bite
I'm often surprised to find
That the taste doesn't measure up to the sight

I am starving to death
Nothing satisfies my needs
I'm discontented and hungry
But there is nothing but weeds

My struggle for survival kicks in
I'm desperate to stay alive
So I gobble up everything in sight
Regardless of the bitter taste derived

I am full for the first time
But I'm still hungry for more
Something sweet and juicy
A treat from the candy store

I just want to be happy
I want to be satisfied
I want what I'm craving
Not just barely making it by

But the season has come
And I have to build my cocoon
I need to find a safe place
Lit by the golden moon

I wrap myself up
And slowly tuck myself away
Snuggled warmly in what I know
And I await my metamorphic day

I need my wings
I must fly
Let the change occur within
At least let me give it a try

Give me time to heal
I'll be alright in the end
But right now
I just can't let anyone in

Let me try to deal with this
I promise I'll be out soon
Until that blessed day though
I'm trapped in my cocoon
