Clipped a Poem by Butterfly Thomas #PoetryPlace #WordPressWednesday

By Butterfly Thomas

I see her
Unaware and unknowing
Of the world around her
Freedom denied to her
Shelter deprives her
Loving arms restrict her
Seclude her
Convince her
It isn’t safe
Fear binds her
Devotion roots her
Illusion distracts her
Lies hide her
From sight
A bird without flight

    1. Hi Robbie, glad you liked it. Butterfly is an incredible poet in that she can speak in such a clear voice about the issues which she finds important and wishes to share with the world.
