Fo

Little butterfly low on the ground
Trapped on your belly, crawling around
Seeing the world from the mud down below

You scamper and scurry with hundreds of feet
Void of direction and feeling defeat
Never thinking your destination is more than you know

You take note of the birds and ponder the sky
A soul-haunting dream – oh that you could fly
The world is so big and there is just one little you

Sadly you scurry – too many directions
Surviving your minutes and lacking protection
To not get stepped on or laughed at, to just make it through

You are tired and weary, the days are so long
Your ears are atuned to a far-away song
So high in the trees, these birds sing out your name

You ignore it forever, but weariness wins,
You climb up the tree burdened with sins
To come up and visit, to rest a while from life’s game

Knowing nothing but dirt, you start the ascent
But your poor tired body is horribly spent
Your eyes are half closed and you feel as if you’re half dead

You slip into the darkness and welcome the cave
As you leave your tomorrows, ever so brave
Finally there, now rest your beautiful head

The deepest of sleeps has taken you now
The world left behind you, you’ve had your last bow
But sweet dreams of freedom sing louder, calling you near

You waken and realized you are chained in this cave
You struggle to loose your self – ever so brave
If only you hadn’t awoken, sleep quenced your fear

You fight and you toil pushing hard with your force
Regretting the day that you changed to this course
Is this all that there is, this bondage-filled fate?

Yet the sun bursts through in a glorious stream!
A crack in the cave wall as if in a dream
So close to breaking out that you hardly can wait.

Away falls your prison, you are free now to crawl..
But wait, what is this, you’re not crawling at all
Beautiful wings envelope you, way up in that tree!

Oh my that you would try to soar
You lift off, take flight, you see so much more.
Your every dream fulfilled after your toil

Things look different from where you are now
Hope crowns your tomorrows, joy lifts your brow
No more life in the dirt, you are far from the soil

I love and appreciate feedback. Feel free to let me know what you think. Bless you lots, Easter Ellen
