#TogetherWe Fly

The Butterfly

I am a butterfly I am a butterfly with beautiful wings I am a butterfly, I fly so high, I reach the sky, I am alive, I am free, I can chase the sunlight

I am a butterfly I am a butterfly with tired wings I am a butterfly caught in a jar, I am tired, I am trapped, I tried to fly, I don't remember why I wanted to

I am a butterfly I am a butterfly with no fly in my wings I am a butterfly who doesn't want to be free, who doesn't see why I need to be or why I wanted to be or how I could be. How did flying feel?

I could stay here, I am safe. I am trapped. I am safe. I don't need to fly. I want to keep my jar. I am safe. Don't break my jar. I am safe. Don't break my jar, don't take my jar, don't make my jar set me free.

I am free. I am not safe. I cannot fly. Why did I want to fly. How did I fly. I don't see the point of trying to fly. My wings have dulled. My strength is lost. I want my jar. I don't want to have to try to fly. I am fear not flight

I am a butterfly I am a butterfly who is blown away on a breeze I am a butterfly who can't feel the free in the breeze, who can start to feel the sun, who needs to use the wings, who needs colour and life and a reason to try and fly free.
