Day 217: 5 Minute Freewrite Challenge initiated by @mariannewest. Thursday-Prompt: appetite

To Be Me

It's not easy to be me, listen and you will see,
"You don't have a clue," I said to Lou.
You drank milk, smooth as silk; when you were born, as was the norm.
My mother Peg, made me eat an egg.

Your first steps were pretty neat, on two feet,
Try walking on six, which is quite a mix.
You think your muscles are sore?
I have thousands more.

Now you know why my huge appetite, isn't polite.
It's not easy to be me, keep listening and you will see.
Your eyes are two as you view; glasses makes four, if you want to see more.
Mine are twelve for sight, but can only differentiate, dark and light.

Your growth is slow, until you glow.
Mine is on overdrive, and to survive; 5-6 times I shed, to move ahead.
Your responsibilities go on for years, with your peers.
My job is one, only lasting for weeks; eat, eat, eat, until it leaks.

Your life changes in subtle ways, in the passing days,
My life changes in drastic ways, in the passing days.
I alone had to eat as ten horses, for my metamorphose.
Now I'm a Monarch, out of the dark; flying in the light, ever so bright.
As you can now see, it's not easy to be me.

Thank you for your wonderful comment! You keep me motivated to continue. : )

Hi. What a successful description. The butterfly is feeding. How difficult or easy it can be to get

·

Hi @isacrist59! Thank you for your nice comment. It is difficult to get a photo of a butterfly because they do not stay still very long and scare easily. When I can get a photo like this, it makes it all worth while. Thank you for stopping by! : )

Very good comparison, which allows you to know or review the main characteristics of a butterfly. Very ingenious. Greetings @whatisnew

Mucho Gracias @cjao20! No habla espanol so please, please keep commenting in English, amigo. LOL! : )
A very long time ago, I took Spanish in high school. The teacher was horrible and not many passed her class. I only know a few words en espanol. : )

Love when you write insect poems :)

·

Thanks Marianne! I love writing them so it makes me happy that you enjoy them too. : )

Who knew that there was a lot to chew before rest was due? Those wings that grew were how the butterfly flew, to the flowers in front of you!

Your rhyming always inspires me, you're contagious in the best way! ;)

I'm greatly impressed that you were able to capture such a terrific photo of monarch butterfly! @f3nix is going to love this, not as much as your poem though. :)

·

Look at you...rhyming the way you do! What you wrote is beautiful.

I can't tell you how many photos I took of butterflies just to get a few good ones, but it sure was fun. I did read somewhere that @f3nix has a butterfly collection? Is that true?

·
·

Yes I have a butterfly collection as much as IT has a red ballon for everyone.. what a cute clown! 😁

Hola @whatisnew. Has logrado un combinación perfecta entre el poema y la imagen. Felicitaciones por esa perfecta unión entre el texto y la magnifica foto. Bello tu post.

Hola amiga! Muchas gracias! It makes me happy to hear that you enjoyed the poem and foto. Muchas gracias once again. : )
