Oh!

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.
