The black butterfly
Synonymous with the African American experience
Having been through drastic changes
That resolve with beauty that is not just skin deep…
No, Black Butterflies are not just the reflection of you or me.
Initiated from what’s within
Their majesty is in
Their reaction to a set of circumstances
He nor she created, yet still lived through gracefully.
A chrysalis of sorts
One that tells the story of the invisible toils and trials
That molded beautiful beings from caterpillar-like shapes
Into the abstract artistry of freedom...
