Butterfly - Poem by Abdul Wahab

Oh, butterfly, butterfly,
why do you flutter by?
Why can not you fly straight,
and have any weapons to fight?
Where do you get so much colour?
Can I buy one, how much in dollar?

Why do you have two lives?
Can I get one, please!
I want to transform mine,
To overcome human crisis,
Through the mysterious morphosis.
I want to be you, O! Butterfly,
From flower to flower to flutter by.

    ... To overcome human crisis. Everyone wants a fresh start at a better life. Kinda wish we had more than one life, too - to morph like the butterfly, and fly above life's troubles. Neat. 10 (Report) Reply

    When I started to read this poem I thought it to be lighthearted but discovered that there
    was an impotant question within its thought provoking fine descriptions.Thank you for making me think! (Report) Reply

    beautiful! ! ! pathos of this life compels all of us to quit the title of man as a master creation n to idealize a delicate creature like a butterfly (Report) Reply
