The Gloom of the Butterfly

{Inspired by the painting Butterfly in Gloom by Jasmine Becket-Griffiths}

 

Long dark journey of her soul

Cocooned from all distractions

Wrapped within

The metamorphosis

Here will begin

After much sadness

She emerges full

Of hope and joy

To find

Reflected

In the gloom of the world

Sad eyes

Her wings too small to fly

She cannot emulate the butterfly
