Fragile as a Butterfly

As fragile as a butterfly
That's the beat of my heart.
It's been that way,
Since the day we had to part.

As fragile as a butterfly,
My confidence took a nose dive.
It took some time to retain it,
And today I feel so alive.

I don't take life or people for granted,
But treat them with respect.
For they too are as fragile as a butterfly
That's what I've come to expect.

People who try to make decisions for me,
Are way out of their league.
"I am what I am"
That's what I believe.

To those who do not know me,
I'm honest and wouldn't hurt a fly.
And to myself I'm true.
Positive yes! but fragile as a butterfly.
