Lady Butterfly

Scared and insecure
I hide in my room
Walls built around me
As if a cocoon
Hoping that I
Can be all you see
Looking for any
Of this beauty to be

Images you paint
With soft tender care
How I long for those visions
To truly be there
Yet when I look deep inside
All I see is me
Nothing so special
Just a heart and a beat

With painted on wings
I will try to fly
For the want to believe
I can not deny
Perhaps one day
I will see as you do
I will see myself
I will be beautiful
