The Anti-social butterfly

Quite the social butterfly,
She says not hiding the sarcasm,
He tries to tell her,
How to be better,
And yet she mocks his advice,
Nothing personal against him,
She's just tired of them running her life,

There are reasons why she isn't one of them,
One of the masses,
She can't conform,
To what others think she should be,
She doesn't have the will power,
To change who she is,
She only has the strength,
To remain the same,

Though she is always changing,
Not always for the better,
She will never meet their standards,
Never become like them,

There's a reason why she's different,

She knows he's not telling her to change who she is,
He simply means to be more social,
To get out there and prove that she belongs,
But she's so afraid that she doesn't,
That once she puts herself out there,
They will decide that she's not worth the trouble,

She knows he means well,
But as he says the advice is who he is,
Take it or leave it,
She's listening,
While arguing her point,
That she will remain,
For now,
The anti-social butterfly,

Maybe one day she will take his advice,
But not today,
For though she is glad to know she has that option,
It's not a chance she can take today,
So the anti-social butterfly remains on the ground,
Ready to take the advice,
Become social,
Spread her wings and fly

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
