And just for thought...
I get flustered, feeling like my efforts are for nothing
Then a butterfly lands on my shoulder,
Fluttering it's wings and I smile,
Knowing my someday will come.
Right now I sweat, I bleed, I cry when I feel stuck,
Knowing where I am doesn't fit who I am.
The butterfly flies away, leaving me lonely
But I know it's just teaching me to hold on tighter to my net.
One day I will catch these dreams I chase.
I get sidetracked by the things that mean nothing,
Always tucking the world in before I lay me down
But the butterfly sits with me,
Reminding me they too once were just a caterpillar.
Life takes time to bloom.
I feel the changes in me as I sit in this cocoon.
I understand my pattern is still forming.
Right now I struggle, I fight, I get knocked down
But I will never stop trying to take flight
Because one day the butterfly in me will emerge.
I will get disappointed, rejected, feel like I'm fighting a losing battle.
Then a breeze caused by the flap a butterfly wing will blow softly upon my crinkled brow and I will smile,
Knowing that one day I will truly be seen.
One day I wilo break free from this cocoon to fly.
I sit on a sunny afternoon with my book in the quiet of my corner,
Writing these words that pour from this soul,
Never knowing if anyone will ever truly understand them
But still they come, still they fly
Knowing one day I will be the life that blooms,
Knowing one day I will be the butterfly that soars.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
