Free like a Butterfly

I feel lost,
Like I am in a Dream
That’s not Mine.

A Dream where I am,
Stuck on the Ground
Where I am entangled in vines
Unable to get Free
Like the vines were holding me back.

Struggling as I did
I felt Hopeless
Until you came

You lifted me up from
My Dark Place,
And said, “A Butterfly should Fly and be Free
Not Sitting and Stuck on the Ground
Like a Caged Bird.

Soon without my knowing,
I was Flying through the Sky.
Free like a Butterfly.
