Butterfly Effect Florette

whispering soft on fragrant swells,
a story only you can tell
amidst the chaos don’t ask why
but rise above, to the heights fly where condors dwell

though some may try to hold you here
don’t listen to their hopeless fear;
the universe has other plans
a shift in time, the fates be damned,
makes all things clear

yield to the metamorphosis
existence grounded, sands to sift;
flee the chrysalis’ slumb’ring keep
lasso the whirlwind’s swirling sweep to find your bliss
