spicy black butterfly

spicy black butterfly, go on and rise.

stretch your wings and take flight, fly high away through the days and into the night.

despite what other insects may tell you , you are one of a kind, divine.

they may bring darkness , but you bring light.


spicy, for the flavor you bring 

the emotions you sing and the magic that lives

one that brings joy, laughter, and happiness

that chases out the hatred, anger and sadness


not all butterflies are the same.

some may carry with them sorrow and pain,

it may take longer for them to fly 

but they will still always find a way to rise


so go on, black butterfly, no need to wait

or everywhere you go, know that you will always be great
