Misunderstood Butterfly

 Lost in translation, scared little girl; striving to live in a lost, senseless world. 

Addicted, restricted, conflicted with pain, knowing that growing will happen with change. 

She thrived in excuses, backed by her shame; 

A one person party, marching in vain. 

No one can help her, she’s all on her own 

No one can tell her what flatters her soul. 

A nudge or a punch won’t jostle her mind; 

Her path is hers, it’s her path to find. 

She'll meet many characters while acting in play, 

Dressed in rehearsal just for today.
