The Moth

What do you suppose is growing in the cocoon?
A butterfly?No,it’s much more beautiful than that.
It’s a moth. It’s ironic. Butterflies get all the attention. But moths, they spin silk. They’re stronger, faster..
There’s a little hole. This moth’s just about to emerge. It’s in there right now, struggling. It’s digging its way through the thick hide of the cocoon. Now, I could help it. Take a knife, gently widen the opening, and the moth would be free.
But it would be too weak to survive. The struggle is nature’s way of strengthening it.
