Butterflies

We are taught to retain
Butterflies
To absorb them;
We are taught to stay silent
When our daydreams flutter,
When our minds wander;
We are taught to remain,
But we are not the cocoon;
We are not in charge of retaining,
We were not born to retain
We were not born to give birth to one feeling and let it rip out of us with beauty and grace and purpose,
No;
We are the butterflies-
We were born with beauty and grace and purpose;
We were born with voices,
And it’s our responsibility to make them known-
