Butterfly



“Why do you hate me?”
Just because I am a fugly caterpillar?

That you cannot embrace and play with me?
I wish I’m one among you!
Tears sloughing I slumbered on a leaf

Which adapted my presence

As the Sun kissed me
I gawked at my tiny golden wings

Attached across my body..
I couldn’t see how beautiful it was
But assayed to spread out

Killing all my fears
I fell down from the top of the branch
My little quills flapped abruptly to salve me
I flew high

Thinking none could catch me

But life anxiously waits
To prove us wrong in every stage

A guy leaped high
And held one of my wings
“O’gosh! I’m not interested to be in your hand, I squalled!
My pigments leaving trace on his fingers,
“Wow” he said, “Oh no” I hollered
Stamping my foot on his hand

I flipped my hands to get away

“Ow, how beautiful it dances , he said.
Placing me on his mitt
He loved the way I endured
As he came closer

I was flown away by his breath !

Fuck human beings!
Thank god I’m not one among them!
I flee away from the spot.

    This is such a beautiful poem & reminds me of one of my favorite quotes by Maya Angelou, β€œWe delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”

    I loved this the best and of course the punchlines “My pigments leaving trace on his fingers,
    β€œWow” he said, β€œOh no” I hollered
    Stamping my foot on his hand I flipped my hands to get away

    β€œOw, how beautiful it dances , he said.
    Placing me on his mitt

  11. beauty is no struggle, the mind of the beautiful is…especially when others don’t recognize their own beauty… some admire and others envy… nevertheless, this is a beautiful poem that shows the struggle.

  19. Humans? A few years ago, a friend and I drove up to Crested Butte, a Colorado mountain town locally famous for its fields of wildflowers. We were standing by the road viewing some of those flowers when a car pulled up, a woman got out, took a few steps into the field, bent down, plucked a flower, sniffed it for a few seconds — then causally tossed it away. “I guess that variety doesn’t have much scent.”, she said, grinning at us — grinning just like she was kindly including us in her fun.

    We didn’t ask, but I bet if we had, she would have told us she was a nature lover and especially fond of the flowers.
