~Metamorphosis~

A butterfly in a box
With holes punched for air
Lives days in despair
As a prisoner of war

With holes punched in heart
It's put on display
And the cell shakes and sways
If it doesn't perform

Someday I'll fly far, far away
From misery and hate
Someday I'll fly but now I wait
For the lid to be removed

When they finally remember I am here
And the box is filled with light
Free at last I'll take my flight
I'll spread my rainbow wings

A butterfly in a box
With holes punched for air
Lives each day in prayer
For
Flight
