Last Day of Poetryfest

Assalamu Alaikum sisters,

Before I get to my third and last poem of the blog fest, I have an award to mention. As you know, earlier this year TheSisWhoSmiles awarded me the Butterfly Award. Along with me, she awarded The Creative Muslimah. And yesterday The Creative Muslimah awarded me the award that was awarded to the both of us. Now enjoy this poem. 


Everyone has their own kind of wings
so fly away and be a butterfly
showing your colors
to the world
also helping those along the way.

You feed them
to work their wings
and be their own
just like you.

Keep it up
yet be like a
sunrise and a sunset
going over the horizon,
but remembering to come back
and shine your light on those you love.

thank you,

If you turn your head the first and last stanzas look like wing tips and the middle one looks like a head... :)
I love the idea of helping those along the way. That's one of the beauties of life, isn't it? We are all colorful in our own way.
Thanks for the poem :)
