I am the butterfly

How many times in the past few years

Have you overcome

Have you changed

A blue-orange butterfly with delicate wings

Vivid color abounds, in your heart beauty sings


You began pure with no cares in the world

Changing and evolving, your power unfurled

Now you stand brightly, a luminous globe

Blinking magically, nightly your stories unfold


On a high precipice you almost lost your grip

Yet your faith and perseverance kept you alive you never quit

Your shining example gives me pride in who you are

Now your wings abound and you fly towards the stars

Beautiful poem of finding faith even when all hope seems lost. You have painted a contrast with elegant colors and hues of the heart.
