A Butterfly (standard:poetry, 80 words)
Author: kendall thomas Added: Apr 03 2010Views/Reads: 1348/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)

A butterfly was trapped 

on the inside of my window. 

It flittered about 

not finding anyway out. 

It couldn't comprehend glass. 

I wanted to help it find freedom, 

but I knew I would only 

hasten its death 

by crushing its delicate wings. 

For us there may be no help 

or perhaps there is something delicate 

that would be crushed. 

No window imprisons us, 

but what restricts 

perhaps is what we believe 

what we cannot comprehend 

that would set us free.
