Life as a Butterfly

Life as a Butterfly 
Beautiful in every way 
Flying free through life, not a care in the world 
soaring the highest mountians 
Flying with ease 
Until he drops to he's knees 
Wings broken, Soul damaged 
But still finds hope to carry on 
Life rebuilds in different ways
New hope is given and life begins, But without his wings
Walking along the new path that lies ahead
Trying to stay possitive without feeling like he's dead
He will swallow his pride and start a new journey
Walking and gaining strength along the way 
Taking one day at a time 
learning to live without wings,trying new things
Love and strength will get him through 
Reaching new depths he never knew 
Enjoying every moment of  his new wingless life 
Trying to stay focussed on the shining light 
Taking each new breath with ease, feeling the beautiful breeze 
Appreciating each new step, walking with no regret
