PATIENCE

Have patience said the butterfly

don't let lifes lessons pass you by.

Of the prettyrose up yonder

the butterfly does surelyponder.

Inside his cocoon in patience he waits

for a journey to soon take place.

Inside his metamorphous journey,

what would happen if he'd hurry?

would he still sprout with wings to spread?

would the rosestill be the color of red?

in patience one waits

in silence one knows

Be present said the butterfly

to be the things that pass you by.

be present in everything you see

be your life and you'll be free.
