Poetry: Butterfly

This poem is the second submission from Dr. Kevin T. Coughlin Ph.D. that we have published. We look forward to your comments about his poem entitled: Butterfly 



Born of love she cries,

As freedom fills her lungs.

True innocence, God’s messenger,

A journey of the heart.


Love makes all the difference,

As light creates the day.

The blind with sight regained,

Shall witness each metamorphosis.


Great each man’s potential;

So lost a soul can be.

A teacher and a student,

Nourishing and living dreams.


She is now a mother;

Many will cling to her;

The beauty of her wings,

A flower for the world.
