There Are Worms and There Are Butterflies
Some of you will always be worms.
You may end up eating rotten flesh off burn victims
and saving lives. Butterflies often get the net.
Someone, probably with a mustache, invented a killing jar
so butterflies don’t damage their wings trying to escape.
No one will tack you on a board and hang you
on their wall after you’re dead. This doesn’t mean
you shouldn’t stop wishing to be a butterfly.
For every thirty-three breaths, there’s a wish bubble.
There’s time enough later to stop breathing.
If you will always be a worm,
you should try to be your best worm.
On the inside we are all the same
and we all want what is best for everyone (and you too).
