I, Butterfly

Basically, the right to die movement has me sitting here in fear. The right to murder is more like it.

I feel alive!
I feel so free today.
Yesterday I wanted to die.
Thank the gods it didn’t turn out that way.
I… am free!
As a Butterfly!
I fly over the trees
Looking down on the caterpillar, I used to be…

My life is not the same it could have been
My life is a struggle, it always has been!
and I know suffering. Oh I know suffering.

But today, simple things brought me joy.
Held my cat, went and stared at the sun
Now as I lay me down to rest…
I feel free alive
I feel alive

Please don’t think less of me for not wanting to die
My body and my life aren’t yours to supervise
So set me free
Let me be
Set me free
Let me be

I just want to be alive!
I fought, I’ve suffered
I’ve cried.. a thousand tears or more
I’ve died maybe a hundred times yet I keep coming back for more.

So maybe you should take your urge to kill me
and you should seek help, not me.
Wanting to live, if it were anyone else would not be seen as bad

I just want to fly
I just want to fly
I just want sing

And maybe you will someday see
Life for someone like me?
Can be breathtaking!

So come on and fly with me
I will show you the butterfly dance
Come on and fly with me
I will show you if you just take a chance

We can look at the flowers, watch the sun rise
and when the sunsets and we close our eyes
We’ll be alive tomorrow!
It may be hard
It may hurt
Some may say it’s wrong to live this way
But we can be a butterfly
Who doesn’t want to fly?

So let us live and let us be
Even if our lives aren’t perfect harmony
I live right now!
I live today!
I know and I love..
Being a butterfly…
So watch me fly away!
