Oh butterfly
Careless and free
I wish that was me

Beautiful butterfly
With colors that shine
I wish you were mine

Lovely butterfly
Innocent and true
I wish i was you

Brave butterfly
You challenge the sun
While i hide and run

Great butterfly
With your wings in the skies
You are amazing in my eyes

My butterfly
You turn me blue
Because i could never be like you
For i am just a caterpillar

I wrote this like two years ago when i caught a really cool looking monarch that landed on my hand. it reminded me of a time when i had really self esteem and was not so confident about myself. it inspired me to write this poem.
