A butterfly unfold,
With belligerent glittering wings,
She begins to fly,
Leaving a trail of gold.
Touching the sky at one,
For her limits are none.
Grazing the fall,
Touching the leaves,
Petting the flowers,
Wind blows it to the sea.
She leaps again,
This time, she won’t sway
For she knows her way.
While she heads for the stars,
She knows she can’t look back,
She believes in it now,
There’s no hiding any more,
When she lights the heavens on fire!
My world has no discrimination,
It isn’t bathed in fear –
Of being looked down upon,
Of the unknown.
Of that parasite under the carpet,
Of death underneath that living breathing carcass,
Of running and gunning for that ever elusive prize.
When all that I came in and will leave with,
Is a soul.
A self-nurturing yet powerless form,
Misunderstood and unanswered.
I like to think of these chills as
My soul trying to shrug off the uncertainties,
A way for it to relax in this chaos that embraces my body like skin,
A way for it to absorb the vivid forms and colors of nature,
Air water sun and all.
I like to think of each day as another passing glance,
Over that field of opportunities,
To feed this soul,
To do 1 good thing for that solitary beacon of hope that truly belongs to me,
That one trustworthy mate that teaches you,
The difference between good and evil,
Right and wrong,
Pleasure and pain,
Want and need…
