Beauty FLys

Beauty Flys


I wondered around wondering what my purpose in life was.

I always felt out of place.

Then one day, I could feel a change occurring within myself.

It was like I was in a cocoon; trapped.

I was so lonely.


Then one day I could see the light for the first time, so I strengthed out.

Finally I was free.


There was something different about me.

My body, and color had changed.

I felt beautiful for the first time.


Then, I noticed I had wings.

So I did what felt natural; I spread my wings and with all my might, I started to flap them, and I flew for the first time.

The world was like a new place to me, I could see everything differently.


With all the changes you may go through, it will one day make you into something beautiful.


And beauty always flys

    Well, I did come by to read this - and it it very good - and I think so true for many in life - maybe most people are kind of like butterflies. Will stop by later this week to read more - have to watch the grand-babies now.....

    Lovely poem and truth spoken. I encourage my daughters to fly on Eagles wings and one of my pet themes is for people to be who they truly are no matter what others want to say about it. Its about self love and self respect. Another poem on my list says that without abject sorrow there can be no rapture. Nice read. Kind regards, Ian

    Lovely poem April! I love your reference to the cocoon - to be in touch with one self is the ultimate step in self-actualization. And that last line takes the crown. I love it!
