A Butterfly's Dream - Fly High



Udaipur, Closed doors, Arpit Rastogi, India
Few closed doors
Reaffirms, never defy
My hunger to excel 
In cocoon, yearning to be a butterfly

Half-baked wings
Fluttering with hope
I may fail, fail again
Only endeavor is to stay afloat

Nothing can weigh me down
Far away from maddening hullabaloo
Nearing my goal
Taking a step or two

Setbacks on the path
Will arouse my thirst
I'll rise from ashes
I've witnessed worst

Success - will not quench my hunger
It will only multiply
I just learned to flutter
I will fly high

  8. Love the poem. There are so many variables in life where things have to line up for things to happen. The only control we have is on our preparation. So we should learn whatever we have to learn, practice however we have to practice, to get the best out of ourselves.

  15. Fly you must, for every bird has its destiny, not to be chained by thoughts, but to chase them in open skies and catch their lovely prey.

  53. I love this. Only one problem, butterflies make a chrysalis, moths make a cocoon. I just know this because we raised caterpillars this summer. I made the mistake of saying they were making a cocoon to. My husband corrected me; then I looked it up to be sure.
