Set Free!

Set Free!

A Butterfly was set free recently!
Just between you and me
It was a long time arriving.
Many of his years were spent surviving
Clueless, discombobulated, emotionally constricted
Indulgently restricted
By years, tears and fear.
A known pain in the rear
Sharing his tales of woe as fact
Like forcing air through a tube in order to create an artifact.
Done a lot, frequently and very often it seems,
Absent of any intentional hopes and dreams,
While lackadaisically living life with strife,
Lacking enthusiasm, determination and a modicum of life.
Awakened one day
To end his caterpillar way.
Determined to change
And hopefully rearrange
A miserable existence
With powerful assistance
By going within.
Rekindling an inner guide dormant for him
For many years.
A life stifled, stunted in spiritual arrears
Waiting for miracles too appear of course,
Without a conscious connection to his Source,
The I AM of Any and All Creation.
A transformational process offering great alleviation!
Available to all
Just awaiting a call!
All human butterflies are using that Connection today!
Hip, hip hooray!
