Butterfly Dust - Poem by T.J. Daniels

Don't keep feeding them
teach them to fish.

While some just sit there
sit there and wish.

Some curse the darkness
or wish upon a star.

While others have their dreams
trapped in a jar.

Wishing on moonbeams
and hoping for luck.

And what'll you get?

You'll get butterfly dust.
