I feel like something needs to change. I spend my days in a never ending rut- eating and hiding. In this vast and dangerous jungle nearly every
creature I encounter wants to kill me. I don't know what I have done to deserve this. I am afraid.
I have watched most of my friends and family be brutally ripped apart and devoured by great scaled dragons and flying feathery demons, sometimes even
terrifying slithering serpents. Then there is the great and evil giant that is scariest of all with its sharp bladed machines and poisonous liquids,
its steps causing great earthquakes. I tremble in fear as I crawl beneath the low hanging leaves or curled up behind one of the massive trunks, but I

from underneath one of the small branches near the top of the plant beneath some leaves, even more surprised that it is moving and something appears
to be emerging from the cocoon! She watches with amazement as one of the beautiful wonders of nature plays out right before her eyes. The
metamorphosis is complete, and what was once a frightened caterpillar has transformed into a beautiful and majestic butterfly!
