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
    He loved the way I endured
    As he came closer I was flown away by his breath !

  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.
