The Life Of A Butterfly. - Poem by margaret haig

The life of a butterfly is amazing but true,
Created by God, for a lesson for me and you;
It starts so ugly that tiny catterpillar, you will see,
It crawls along the ground till its time is ready.

After it crawls into the cocoon, it dies, then comes back,
It comes out as a creature of beauty, nothing to lack;
There's so much color so pretty and so unique too,
Each tiny wing, with it's own markings too, its so true.

This butterfly has a story like the tiny tadpole,
Who swims in the river, and in the waterhole;
He also changes he eventually changes his looks,
To growing legs and coming a frog, it's in the books.

And the ugly duckling who went to find some fame,
He did not like it at all, he had ugly attached to his name;
But as time went and he grew into something of Beauty,
He saw in the reflection, he was no longer ugly.

People are like this, they may grow up as not so pretty,
And people tease, as only ugliness is what they see;
But as the person grows into a beautiful woman too,
It's what's inside is not skin deep, it comes from the heart it's true.

And lastly Jesus was on that ugly cross, an awful death He died,
He could have chosen to come down, but that He denied;
And when we turn to Christ from a sinner that is ugly and dirty,
We also change from that to heart deep Christian full of beauty.
