Butterfly

Flutters on the wind

Blowing

Uncontrolled

Tiny wings flapping against

Powers greater than it

Delicate wings to little

To battle the endless flow

A leaf lost in a stream

Outmatched, but not

Defeated

Inside a strength

Greater than the billow

Strength to keep going

Strength to redefine power

Strength to be patient

To outlast and triumph

A strength, a great power

Inside the weakest

The smallest

The most overlooked

Of us, but 

The most persistent

The power resides

Not in the hawk

Not the lion or the wolf

Not the eagle

In the butterfly

Or the mouse

The fallen flower petal

The lost honey bee

The trickle of a stream

The fairy standing in the rain

The lost, the broken

The confused, the crumbled

The stories all captured

Weaving in and out

Intertwining and dispersed

On the butterfly wing
