Dreaming of Simplicity

Morphing slightly

Into a butterfly.

The colors change

Into a beautiful creation.

I want to be that creature.

I want to change.

I want to be beautiful,

Happy with a raindrop

On a leaf.

Like a child,

Devoid of self-consciousness,

Wanting to play again,

Laugh loudly,

Run without care,

Giggle at everything,

Kick and bounce,

Enjoy a sprinkler in the front yard,

Or pretend.

Maybe when I’m older,

I won’t care what people think,

I will find my own way again

To be myself.

I will be able to have visions,

Enjoy the little things,

Relax without worry,

Not take myself too seriously.

Life is funny,

How we move in circles,

But there I go again.
