Inside my shell is a cozy spot
Where dreams and ambitions rest
Yet it’s a place that’s quite too small
It can’t contain life’s quest

I desire to reach the highest heights
The pinnacle of success
Yet fear hinders this heart of mine
Such emotion creates distress

I have a fear of making mistakes
I’d rather stay safe and dry
But this raging dream won’t let me rest
Until I morph like a butterfly

I guess it’s time to take the risk
And fall every now and then
After all, the bottom is where treasures lie
It calls forth all great men

To miss the mark is not the end
It simply is the start
Of something great, unleash your best
The treasures of your heart
