Steel Butterfly

A weak worm hatched From an egg that is fragile Trying to survive the world Full of predators and guile Romanticsm has been just an instrument To be confined in the ego And a faint serfage On behalf of love upon herself So she claims herself No longer merely a companion Metamorphosed as time goes by A mild steel butterfly
