where does the butterfly flutter to boon

once free from  her cocoon

where she spent several lightless moon

where she only knew limitations of her full moon?

for all she has is her cocoon ambition

but all she is declarational nothing.

without the colours of her rainbow – she is nothing

without her truth her life her love – she is nothing

but a blunted knife that scythes at all that nature intended her to be – nothing

is she truly truly free or mere nothing?

for all she has is her cocoon ambition

but all she is – declarational nothing.

did she lose herself to the influence of the birds and the bees

and their ignorant pleas?

or was it the leaves that fell from autumn trees

that broke her innocent pleas?

for all she has is her cocoon ambition

but all she is – declarational nothing.

so many questions left unanswered

so much freedom chartered

with gravitational piercings – her innermost uttermost charred

boast not of your admonition

for all she has is her cocoon ambition

but all she is – declarational nothing.

the butterfly that she is to become is

gray black and white not purple blue or sky-like – is

a reflection of how the constellation has constructed her – is

empty and lifeless as recreational art is.

for all she has is her cocoon ambition

but all she is – declarational nothing.

who is she now?

when her wings will not open – now

when she stays in isolation because she fears freedom – now

when her wings all broken all broken – now

for all she will ever have is her cocoon ambition

if she remains a declarational nothing.

“please unbind my beautiful being”

she is begging

for life full of life is being

and not life full of lifeless being.

for all she will ever have is her cocoon ambition

if she remains a declarational nothing.

“unwind my inner butterfly” and let me be

she is pleading let her be

for who she is meant to be

and not what you want her to be.

for all she wants is to be – a real butterfly

toss the cocoon into the clouds – let her fly.

this is her cocoon ambition

to become a declarational something.
