Butterfly - Poem by Abdul Wahab

-->

Oh, butterfly, butterfly,
why do you flutter by?
Why can not you fly straight,
and have any weapons to fight?
Where do you get so much colour?
Can I buy one, how much in dollar?

Why do you have two lives?
Can I get one, please!
I want to transform mine,
To overcome human crisis,
Through the mysterious morphosis.
I want to be you, O! Butterfly,
From flower to flower to flutter by.

    ... To overcome human crisis. Everyone wants a fresh start at a better life. Kinda wish we had more than one life, too - to morph like the butterfly, and fly above life's troubles. Neat. 10 (Report) Reply

    When I started to read this poem I thought it to be lighthearted but discovered that there
    was an impotant question within its thought provoking fine descriptions.Thank you for making me think!
