Butterfly

 

My predisposed demeanor of alchemy envelops my destiny without choice,

this questionable stage of my existence I did not ask for.

No sight of understanding I’ve gained yet on this process of life,

but blindly and bravely, I continue to believe in its goodness.

 

The unknowing of such awe look not at me twice-

Easily dismissed I am as ordinary,

but the journey ahead tugs at my optimistic nature.

 

There’s an ineffable magic I keep but know not where it will take me,

I trade my trepidation for patience and find comfort in whispers of intuition.

My dreamy state offers subduction and collects my energy as toll,

without a glimmer of attention except for my own,

I become friends with my spirit.

 

Encased in darkness but incredibly aware, I realize it is only by eye

that others first detect change.

No transparency surrounds me as the hard work of solitude carries on-

Fervently protecting the un-veil with due time.

 

And effortlessly one day like waking from a long abstraction,

I was me on the outside now, as my heart beauty-fully

Unfolded on my sleeves.
