    I AM
    Today I cried for a dog,
    who laid at the coffin of his master
    and would not leave until it was time.
    His pain displayed for all to see.
    Big, salty tears poured from my eyes,
    down past my heart where the sadness lies
    as deeply as the soldier’s brown and polished
    coffin will lay
    in the ground.
    Today I cried for the butterfly
    struggling to emerge from it’s cocoon.
    One wing crumpled and misshapened.
    The perfect transformation interuppted.
    It will die, I think.
    Destiny will not allow a maiden flight
    nor to gather sweet nectar from a flower.
    Today I cried
    for the "me" who was destined to become
    someone… instead of the one I am now.
    One of the millions of
    soft sad hearts whose pain is bravely carried and hidden
    so that, none can see.
    I am the dog who  mourns
    and waits.
    I am the crumpled winged butterfly,
    longing to fly.
    I am all the lost and stolen childhoods.
    So, today I cried.


    *feeling the pain right now* …sniff, sniff.
