A Poem by Tianna G. Hansen

Bent Wings

 

 

You are a butterfly

with bent wings,

they say you will

never fly again.

 

Wings of fragile

silk

flutter in winds

never to feel the

breath

of air beneath,

 

soaring high above

budding flowers

the caress of sun's

rays gentle like

 

a considerate lover

who takes his time

to discover every inch

of you instead

of rushing through,

ignoring your stiff

limbs and cries,

 

a captured butterfly

only trying to test

its wings and

take flight,

 

become anew just as the

moment of crawling

free from the

chrysalis and first

 

learning

how to fly
