Butterflies in a Jar

Butterflies in a jar
Flap their colorful wings waiting to be set free.
They have been locked inside the jar for a long time,
They long to feel the fresh air touch their small bodies and fragile wings.

Butterflies in a jar
Dance inside, hoping to be set free.
They long to fly, to travel, to discover.
To feel the sense of being wild and young.
Being trapped in a jar is like being trapped in a prison jar.

They see the beautiful world around them and their eyes grow weary at being trapped inside, not knowing what to do.
Their young, curious eyes grow old and tired with each passing moment.
