The Butterfly

The wonder of the butterfly
is the conflict you never see. 
They are champions
of the greatest battle
on Earth: shedding the old
to welcome the new.
Many people know
the beauty of 
a butterfly. 
They don't see
the struggle and the pain. 
The process from one thing 
to another. 
From crawling to flying. 
From clinging to falling.
Breaking the walls of a shelter 
made only to be destroyed. 
Earning wings
is a trial of things 
challenging and new.
The celebration of a victor 
who overcame the odds. 
The life of one who flies.
