Butterflies Cry


Pretty wings of yellow,
black, and orange
soaring- changing the world
one flutter at a time
buttering the earthy eye
with dazzling color

as it lands, sits alone
waiting for a friend
for someone to admire
or smile at
but, occasionally its
wishes aren't granted
what then?

the humble butterfly
begins to shed tears
those  tiny black spots
you adore on its wings
they are not just beauty marks

sometimes it is a scar;
an example to impress upon
a brokenhearted someone
that life goes on
whether you have scars or not

to send a warm hearted message
for those who have been tested
to flap those spotted wings harder
touch the sky with more courage
and perserver in each gust of wind

continue to bear the image of grace
you are not a waste
you were born to prove
there is beauty in growing pains
in anything you do

just remember the cocoon
before you hide yourself
inside an eternal dark winter
there is splendor in the grass

as long as you can break through
float in harmony with the sun
the tears will dry
the tears will be gone
