I Envy The Butterfly


I envy the butterfly
With it's bright and beautiful colours
Flies freely with grace
Effortlessly through the wind

Free from the gravity of past deeds
Past lives lived
That tries to hold I down
Anchoring I to the earth
Like chains to a slave


Dragging I to the jaws
Of earth with dirt and mud
Ready to consume I
Taking back from I
That which I was moulded from


I envy the Butterfly
Gracefully and beautifully
Majestically flying off
From the jaws of past lives 
I envy the butterfly

  6. You describe the motion and movement of the butterfly exactly right. And the envy of the human.

  7. Through the butterfly image and metaphor your lines comment both on nature and perception of it. Well done. Enjoyed it.
