Young Butterflies

Rating: 4.7

Young butterflies,
Please, let your tender wings grow
Before you try to hit the skies
In an attempt to early fly
When the time is not right!
Scared to Hell you would be
If this dangerous endeavor
You would desperately try
When the time
Doesn't seem to be right!

the hurt inflicted in our young hearts will remain with us for ever.. so it is better to follow the advice of elders instead of getting into trouble in the name of adventure and fun..Well done, Romeo

Gem of a poem for budding butterflies waiting to fly mostly not knowing what, why, where, with whom and how. Great job.
