I am a butterfly, trapped

In a worm's little body

I try to raise my wings

But they do not exist

 

I am a bird, bound

By physical hurt

I try to soar

But I fall to the ground

 

I am a dreamer, lost

In my own grey shadow

I wish for more

But it never approaches

 

I am a dancer, controlled

By a girl who's afraid

I envision graceful movements

But stand forever timid and still

 

I am an achiever, stopped

By inherent laziness

I think in lists, dream of goals

But always I am waiting
