Butterfly's Soul


Butterfly’s Soul
My dreams play out
In the theatre of my mind.
It's authenticity I seek and shall find.
Shadows of characters
Cast imprints upon my soul.
For this dream is all I know.
The tapestries weave
Not yet complete.
Vivid colour splashed
Upon canvas.
I see my dream
Through the looking glass.
I traverse the maddening maze
Past the Jesters with their sneers,
The Marionettes of Mediocrity.
Past the destroyer of dreams,
The Sinister Mage.
For I do not belong in their reality.
I rise, defiant,
With uncompromising wings.
I shall achieve my dreams.
