I am the dancing Butterfly

Sometimes when I find myself adrift I transform into a dancing butterfly Escaping with imaginations and wanders off into Wonderland It's a world only I can glimpse and explore the hidden emotions of my being I am the dancing Butterfly I don't need the world's recognition I just wanna be me... the dancing Butterfly Light on my wings I fly Soaring free Fragile to the strong wind Yet fluttering high Gliding with ease of my own time When I'm ready With passion and gladness my ink will flow rhythmically onto this page Unveiling the closed curtain so I may fly freely in the real world Rather than displaying a dramatic show I am the dancing Butterfly I don't need the world's recognition I just wanna be me... the dancing Butterfly Light on my wings I fly Soaring free Fragile to the strong wind Yet fluttering high Gliding with ease of my own time I am the dancing Butterfly Smile Akkina Rosario Downing 11-8-17

Hi Akkina! I just added this poem to my faves, since it really speaks to me about my own need to be an individual, flying free, not giving in to pressures from others to be a certain way. Keep them coming, and stay soaring!
