THE BUTTERFLY CHILDREN – Emmanuel Mettles

THE BUTTERFLY CHILDREN – Emmanuel Mettles

We wish to flutter and sing.
Swaying beautiful wings.
To fly to the shades of fun.
Alas !! the fate has denied the sun!

Arrested,imprisoned and sentenced!
Whipped , torn and scattered !!
No winds to carry us to the dreams.
For the dreams are sealed in screams.

Fragile are we, scared of pain,
That hides to leap upon.
From every possible nooks of gain.
A tear drop wrapped in smile.
A scorching truth for sale!!

Come,behold our plight.
That tear your heart at sight..
No crocodile tears but a helping hand,
That would work as a magic wand!!!
