Butterfly -Opal July 2017

Butterfly, by Beth Gibbons

I am a butterfly

I wrapped myself in darkness
As though it was comforting

Secure
Known
I am a butterfly

Spent my time isolated
Made my own cocoon

Consoled
Alone

I am a butterfly
Learned to spread my wings

Still learning how to soar
Transformed
Grown

I am a butterfly
Full of life and love
Forever trying to be colourful

Awakened
Roam
I am a butterfly…
