Pretty Little Butterfly
Tragic little butterfly,
Who stole from you your wings?
Who grounded you forever more?
Took away the freedom that flight brings?
Lonely little butterfly
Who banished you from home?
Who decided loveless violence
Would be all that you’d be shown?
Silly little butterfly,
Who told you to ever seek the good?
Who told you to cling to hope?
She who told you to have faith,
That life is not for little butterflies,
With wings embossed with beauty.
It’s not for pretty little creatures
Who seek only to do their duty.
It’s most definitely not for little butterflies
Who want to spread their wings,
Who dream of having a wonderful adventure
Full of magic and mystery, amongst other things.
It’s not for pretty little butterflies
Who long to run their race,
Who have to learn the hard way
That for them in life there is no place.
