The Life of Butterflies

a butterfly can’t see it’s own wings
yet it can trust itself to fly
don’t doubt your capabilities
simply for eluding your eyes


what you can’t see,
or appreciate in yourself
may be the same thing we love
and wish we had for ourselves


we’re our biggest critics
self-praise just isn’t promised
when we receive compliments we must listen
understand they’re being honest


just cause we can’t see it doesn’t mean they’re lying
sometimes its out of view
or we’re not trying
to hear what’s needed,
blinded by our mypoic truths


the butterfly’s biggest curse
is not having the vision
to see it’s worth or even beauty
it doesn’t know why it captures attention


having done nothing to gain your bounty
you simply existed and the world loved you
your beauty is your wanted poster
la vida de las mariposas
