The Butterfly

The Cancer Voice Asia | A poem | Photo by Boris Smokrovic on Unsplash.

Green Meadows
Wind blows

Leaves scatter
Flowers glitter

Tiny caterpillar
In survival

Found only
In solitary

Now tarry
To sanctuary

It’s heading
And dwindling

Into cocoon
‘Til June

No space
No face

Hiding until
It’ll unseal

It’s time
To climb

Up where
There’s air

A change
In range

Of motion
And intention

To fly
Soar high

The butterfly
Its dye

It’s beautiful
And colorful

My name is Cielo, the author of “The Cancer Voice Asia”, a blog that aims to support and inspire anyone who is facing cancer. I know how it feels to be diagnosed with a rare and aggressive type of cancer, Leiomyosarcoma, at the age of 29. I know the challenges, the fears, the hopes, and the joys of living with cancer. I want to share my story with you and connect you with others who understand what you are going through. Together, we can empower ourselves and fight against the disease. Join me on this platform and let’s make our healing journey a meaningful one.
