I had a dream last night,
Vivid, full of color and meaning.
I was walking on a lush, green mountain,
Beauty such as I have rarely seen.
All around me flew butterflies,
Butterflies of all sizes and hues.
One landed on my heart and I felt its message;
“It is time for an awakening,
A shedding of the past, of the pain,
A time to become who you are meant to be.”
I felt such peace, such hope, tears of gratitude running down my cheeks.
With heartache comes opportunity;
Breaking free from the cocoon that has held me prisoner far too long,
I unfurl my wings and fly.
