INGRATES OF BREATHS

BUTTERFLY

The butterfly envies

The flight of birds in higher realms

And thinks it will do anything

Anything to be higher

II

What the butterfly does not know

Is that there are birds and there are birds

There are birds ugly and wild

There are birds beautiful and vulnerable

There are birds normal but filthy

There are birds and there are birds

Birds without colour

Birds with colour

Most with no chance to fly low

Where audience can applaud their beauty

III

God is a worried existence

Fishes wanting to be birds

Birds wanting to be fishes

Lions wanting to be humans

Humans wanting to be lions

Spirits wanting to be fleshy

Some fleshes wanting to be spirits

Ingrates of breaths!!!

God’s disappointments!!!
