Free Verse Poem Butterfly Set Free

“Free Verse Poem Butterfly Set Free,” I wrote for the fall, the broken. I wrote for myself as a healing reminder.

We’re as fragile as a butterfly, but within us, we have a purpose, we have strength. If we reach deep, we can find a butterfly set free. In this, “Free Verse Poem Butterfly Set Free” I have written of me, with broken wings I found myself through writing, found my strengths through words. Found also, that it touches other fighting souls who needed inspiration and healing.

Free Verse Poem Butterfly Set Free

Broken butterfly wings.
I was an exposed thing.
I had words. I had words that I couldn’t write.

Life would bring me down.
I struggled to set myself free.

Ohh, so down all the words drowned.
I had words. I had words.
But I could not speak.
It held me down.

I struggled to fly to the blue sky.

Ohh. But there are so many words to write.
That we are running scared
We hold on to life, so tight
We can not refuse
It deprives our life.

Ohh. It deprives our life.

Yes, there are words inside.
I want to live. I want to live. Noo.
I don’t care if I write correctly.

I found myself in words I spill through ink.
I write for love. I write for me.

I write it out like a butterfly set free.

No, I don’t care if my words aren’t written perfectly.
I found myself in words I spill through ink.
Now I fly when I touch another soul.

I have my words; I have my words,
watch them spread hope.

Life struggles it could bring me down.
But I flew high into the sky

Like a butterfly set free.
