Wistful thoughts
Do not satisfy
The hunger inside of me
Dark, corrupt images
Feed the fire of discontent
As I battle to be

Breathe in, breathe out
One day at a time
Clarity to help me see
A butterfly emerging
In a moment of beauty
Forgetting the struggle to be free

    Your poetry always resonates with me. I get a lot of imagery from the words you write. You have a great talent for that. : )
