I am a butterfly

I wish I can go back , to where it all began.
   I should have said something,  I should have taken a stand.
      I feel like a butterfly, but only in reverse...what I really am is LARVA, 
       the beginning the first.

My stories pretty simple, its not hard to define.  Somewhere at some, strange moment. I transitioned.
   & lost in  mind.
     I think I was falling IN LOVE, but didnt know, how to deal.

I disguised myself, like the wings of a butterfly, this became my shield.
   I felt like a PUPA,  not yet ready to open my wings....still growing and maturing , 
     still not knowing. Anything

If I was a butterfly kissed, I would tell myself this.
  There is no plan in life, we simply exist.
    We are all butterflys , Morphing everyday,  Finding our own stories, in very unique ways.

We cannot alter, what has already been, done
    We can only acknowledge,  & learn from our past, 
       and in the present, move on......

Your Wonderful Painting Is As The Brushing Of Their Velvet Wings, Gentle And Soothing, Beautiful Cherie ~ Introspection Soul Searching Images In Picturesque Pleasing...If I Were A Butterfly This World A Cocoon, I Would Soar Unto The Stars It's Empty Shell Within My Wake. I Love Your Poetry And Shall Favour Your Splendours. Love, John
