Butterfly Life

Once, I met a butterfly
Just broken loose of the cocoon
Sequestered for five years
And allotted one day of freedom,
Just one.

And yet this creature was:


I would like a butterfly day
Or perhaps, if its not too much to ask,
Butterfly years.
I have, you remember, been shut up nearly five decades.

I would like to emerge and shed the bonds;
I would like embody beauty and uniqueness;
I would like to be brave and without fear.

I know then that I could fly.
