Like a Monarch

I wonder how I will feel
If what happens to every butterfly I see
Happens to me

I wonder how it would feel
If one morning I open my eyes
And saw that my room had become dark
And my blanket turned into a cocoon

I wonder how it would feel
To crawl out of the cocoon
Will I find it easy? Will I find it hard?

I wonder how I would react
If I stretched my arms
And found out it transformed
Into two pair of wings
With different colors-
Black, yellow, blue and pink

I wonder how to open wide
Those pretty little wings,
To fly freely in the air
From flower to flower
To another, then to another
And to another garden!

I wonder how I would drink
If while flying
I feel thirsty and hungry
How will I drink the nectar of a flower?
I think that would be delicious!

I wonder how it feels like…
To be butterfly
To be like a butterfly that I love to watch
If that happens
Will I love to be like them?
Or I’ll prefer to just observe?
