Catching Butterflies of Hope

Catching Butterflies of Hope

A bewitching creature
beautiful in its nature,
flying up above.

Your heart lights up.
Could there be hope?
So you run.

You want it yours
and give it all you’ve got,
but you never quite seem to catch it.

So near yet miles away.
Finally you give up
and give in 
to its beauty.

You just stare,
knowing you couldn’t catch it
though it was right before your eyes,
waiting for you to try.

This is the first poem I read today. Beautifully written!! One of my best friends was shot and killed by the police 2 years ago and I've been told that whenever I see Monarch butterflies that it's him. Thank u for writing this. I needed it today.

I couldn't help but absorb this into a metaphor about life ,and the beauty that's seems to be unattainable at times yet we go on to pursue it with all our might ...

Fabulous ink ! 😊
