THE BUTTERFLY

Abbigale Slone

You can’t see it 

The beauty of the butterfly 

How you look 

You’re as beautiful and as mysterious as the animal within 

People see you, but not all the way 

People know you but not deep down 

They know the surface but do they know what’s actually happening? Because there’s more than just the surface 

Pretty is on the inside and not the out 

Maybe people will realize 

Before it’s too late 

And the end will come 

But the butterfly can’t see how pretty it is 

But I’m sure it knows 

Maybe if we thought like a butterfly 

Life would be better for everyone
