Fly Butterfly Fly

Fly Butterfly Fly

A Poem by KeeD

Just a feel good poem


Acquire selfish composure

Too awkward in my own skin

Breaking through this enclosure

Trying to best the ugly within


I see you flutter and fly

Typical overachiever 

Reflective beauty to the eye

Making me a believer


Seeking the truth of existence

I acquire a pair of temporary wings

My conscience begs resistance

What does beauty truly bring


Created to be perfect

Always the prettiest sight

My mind filled with conflict

to vanities plight


Metamorphosis beckons me 

Promise to wave my insecurities goodbye

Awaken changed completely

I am absolutely obsessed with butterflies mostly because they are beautiful and has positive symbolism~ This is a great poem and the creative words art at the end made me smle~

"Metamorphosis is the key element of butterfly symbolism. Butterfly as a symbol can also represent transition, celebration, and lightness. It can also symbolizes significant change in the course of one’s life, personality or way of thinking."

You knew you had me at butterfly. An insightful write of our own insecurities and seeing others metamorphosis without seeing out own potential, always hopeful yet feeling we'll never measure up. Human nature Kee, we think other's are so secure in their skin, but read any number of poets here and you'll certainly see comes the sun, it's alright my friend. Love what you did with the formatting to finish this gem up. Kudos, really nicely pen'd. xo

Hi I'm Keegan, most of you talented people on here know me as Kee. I'm 28 and work as a journalist. I write to release bottled feelings, so although it might not be very good, it is me. Thank you for .. more..
