A Butterfly’s Life

Migration

Is a butterfly’s life.

There are changes, but we will get through it.

That is what mother says,

trying

to be positive.

But it is not true.

Migration is a colorless page

a veil of darkness.

 

You don’t fly. You fall.

Migration is like a caterpillar in its cocoon,

trying to come out. Trapped. Changing.

I wish I

were a butterfly.
