GOLD BUTTERFLY 

  
GOLD BUTTERFLY

Said I was prettiest

When I was softest

While admitting the hurt

You inflicted hardened me 

I’m a Gold Butterfly

Who forgot how to sing

You flew away with what

You prevented me from being 

I’m a Gold Butterfly 

Who forgot how to sing

I close my eyes 

And see my voice

Open my spirit

Lest I make the wrong choice 

I’m a Gold Butterfly 

Releasing sounds

Liberating captives

Unlocking doors

Piercing barriers

Soaring 

Warring 

Writing and writing

And writing and writing 

I’m still fighting 

I’m a Gold Butterfly 

And

I

Remember 

How

To

Sing
