The bare trees stand at winter nights, With fragile bodies and no blankets of leaves to cover, Keeping their heads up and hopes high, Waiting for a good time to come. And you shower all your light, That you received as a gift from someone, Because you know what darkness means, So,you just reflect the kindness over them. -JMJ
While fluttering around, Beautiful with vibrant colored wings, I captured your attention, And I saw that you were totally in awe of my beauty! Where is your attention? Is it on my wings? I'm not just that, Those wings are the signs of my success, From hardship and darkness, And I'm proud of them. But, I'm more than that. Once I was a caterpillar, Just like any other worms I used to crawl, To fill my belly, And I ate, I ate so much that one day I couldn'tmove.
I was not able to take a single step and I lost my appetite, No one cared about me, So, I found shelter in darkness, Left alone to die, I covered myself so that no one could ever see me. I spent several days in despair with no light in my life, But, that was not the end, I transformed that I could no longer stay in the cage, That I made myself for me. Now, I'm free, I'm humble and I'm strong, Not just beautiful, So, where is your attention? Is it on my wings? -JMJ
