Do you want to catch me

and confine me

within the boundaries

of your glass jar? 


I am a butterfly,

darling, I will fly,

far above in the sky

and reach for the stars.


Do not chase me,

I warn you.

It is a futile activity

that you would do

to wear out your body.


If you really want to know

where is it that I want to go,

just quietly accompany

me on my journey. 


Be ready for adventure

as we travel on this venture.

Be ready to follow and not to run

away, getting afraid of twists and turns. 


I will go wherever, whenever I please,

wherever I feel at rest, peace and ease. 

Like a free spirit, I will jump over the obstacles

to explore the nature’s miracles.

Free Spirit
