Butterfly trapped in a web

I saw a butterfly in a web trapped like the old me
trying to fly and be set free
staring at it for so long made my mind freeze
scared to let go of something holding you down
will make you internally scream
because you just want to see yourself leave
a blank canvas for your mind will make you see that things aren’t always what they seem
so why is this butterfly still trapped unlike me
maybe it’s the web of lies they fail to see that if they just flap their wings they might be set free
but you see
it’s never really that easy
when you’ve been held down for so long you start to believe that this is the way things should be
but they shouldn’t so unlike this butterfly please flap your wings and learn to leave
because a sticky situation is never meant to be
