Beautiful Butterfly

Wrote this poem about true beauty. I was teased by my complexion and all. But I just ignore them. I think we're all beautiful. :D


August 27,2011

If I have no pearls
or necklaces
or expensive oil
to make m y hair
smooth and shiny
or a bright, red paint
for my lips to be
sweet and pouty
who am I?
In the world of the insecure.
I am bare
but I am free.
I am naked
but this is beauty.


Beware beauty queens
This unnoticed, geeky face means
'Tomorrow I will rule'
A larva that soon will be
Soaring high
its wings, colorful
a dazzling butterfly.

--I think this is somewhat bitter. haha. I was so nerd in high school. I feel like I will always carry the nerd me and the fear and resentment from all those who judge me. Well, I guess I'm will fly high through poetry-- behold the pink butterfly! haha.. :P

Butterflies are gentle and frail,
Blown apart by wind and gale.
Beauty of their existence is from a cocoon,
With Riotous colours that makes Nature swoon.

For they are the anthems of pollination,
They fly to flowers in every nation.
But are more pretty in the wild,
For thats the place were riotous flowers smiled.

Collect the Honey as they ly along,
Then with the Queen they sing the song.
They bring together the work and toil,
With properties hidden in sweetened spoil.

Beautiful one!!!
