Butterfly

by Victoria Mena

Butterflies are special creatures.

They fly around without a care trying not to get caught by the neighbors cat,

But in all honesty they’re no different than you or me.

 

Their first state is a caterpillar, just like people start out small.

They evolve and grow,

And eventually grow into something beautiful if you give it a little bit of time.

 

Their patterns are personalities.

Each butterfly has a unique color and pattern,

There’s not one that is exactly the same.

 

Their wings are emotions.

So fragile and delicate,

The smallest tear can send them crashing down.
