Butterfly and Bee
Float like a butterfly,
Don’t ever feel shy,
But sting like a bee,
So that people might see,
The power in your beauty….
Which is your duty,
To show your inner strength,
That you can cross at any length.
Never let anyone overshadow you,
Always shine like the morning dew.
Sparkle and share your love and light,
Make other’s dull lives bright.
Let the beautiful butterfly float on its own
With a piercing sting like a bee in its bone………
