When I think of all that I am, the first thing that comes to mind is a black butterfly. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen one before and if not, that’s sorta the point. They’re different, set apart – one may admire it because it’s rare to see. I’m the black butterfly.
I’ve noticed throughout my life that I’ve never seemed to fit in. It doesn’t matter if it was family or friends, I was always set apart. I used to view this as a bad thing because I always was alone. Not because people didn’t want to be associated with me, but because I wasn’t a follower. I never followed trends and still to this day it remains the same. One is sure to stick out when they don’t look like everyone else. As a child, this can be very difficult as you’re trying to find who you are and where you belong. It took me a while to figure this out, even as an adult.
I was never the girl that had a huge group of friends or all the hottest guys down my back. I am the type of person that you have to get to know, to see all the beauty that I encompass. If one was sure to find me buried in my zone, they were due to have found a black butterfly. I think of black butterflies at this point. It doesn’t have all the nice fancy colors and won’t be admire by many. But it takes a select few to really zone in on its beauty and foreign nature.
Have you seen a black butterfly before? What were your first thoughts?
