Fly little butterfly.
You hold the secret locked away in my chest,
A chest filled with ache and love,
Ache forever present as I age with days,
With love maintained throughout all my domains.
You finally were set free,
To explore the world as someone new,
Something who could change the whole meaning of “you.”
Fly with your pretty rainbow wings,
And expose yourself to the unknowns outside.
You were once stained dull, now shine so bright,
Trapped me with darkness, now my source of light.
Shine little butterfly and fly so far away,
‘Cause now you have fate within your own wings.
You take yourself where you want to go,
And feel what you need to feel,
Love is a scary place with your drastic colors,
But I promise you will find your one.
Experience the beauty of nature as you are,
Forget about the evil storms of words and judgment,
Find shelter in the ones you confide in the most,
Find the confidence you first started with,
‘Cause you will lose your say but each day blesses a new way.
Beauty is only as beautiful as you want it to be,
So, remember to find love in the better things,
That make you realize your purpose for flying,
And your purpose for existing,
Because with those colored wings you will stand out,
But standing out can only make you suffer if you let it,
Fly away from the scary weather and find a pretty flower.
Rest on it and think about yourself little butterfly,
Cause you are beautiful no matter how anyone sees it.
