How I wish to be that butterfly,
flying freely across the treetops.
It is amazing that humans must fly by plane.
But birds and butterflys
are born with the talent.
I only dream
of posessing such a way to escape.
The butterfly is a very lovely creature.
To posess such beauty and talent,
that us humans have to strive for.
And still, we usually only get one or the other.
I sit here and I am filled with envy.
My entire body is green, right to the core
as I watch the careless Monarch
glide through the cool breeze of air.
If I were a butterfly,
I would be beautiful and talented too.
I would soar through those treetops
as fast as my wings would allow.
I would not look back.
