Butterfly Wings

My heart is restless
stifled being in one place too long
trapped by strings of disillusionment

repeated motions
tossing and turning
in this threaded cocoon

I will take these butterfly wings
and fly out of my caged breast
into new horizons and gentle light

I will soar as high
as these wings take flight
never looking down

because on the ground
I am hunted
but in the skies

I am free.
