Butterflies

BUTTERFLIES

At the crest and its lowest part
We've been together.
Knowledge we've acquired and also forgotten.

You've impelled me,
You've wrapped me in cotton,
You've adhered to our loads, and you've ignored them.

We've argued like there's no tomorrow,
We've been responsible and we've laid blames.
We've drank in monsoonal rain, we've felt barriers and felt the same.

Joy and pain, our compatibilities.
Guilt and shame, our motivations.
All these bought into the game,
Freedom we seek for we've laid claim.

We are butterflies
For we originated from the same cocoon.
