Daily Prompts and Saturday Symphony #16 – A Strange Fairy Tale

I am but a moth

A measly moth

A lowly moth

Who swathed my wings in blue and white velvet

A strange thing for a moth to do

But, I would rather be a butterfly

Not as strange as it seems

I am nervous, as a moth

Swatted and shunned 

While, a butterfly…

Butterflies melt hearts and freeze angry fire

Whether they rest on a twig

Or work, sucking nectar through straw-like tongues

Butterflies are revered, admired, loved

While I am a pest

I apologize, my colors are not nearly as brilliant

But my wings flutter the same

I am stout and fuzzy

But that is cute too, right? 

Sigh…

In my vigorous attempt to be beautiful

To be revered, admired, loved

I have weighed down my wings

The magnitude of my self-depreciation

I can no longer fly

But the blame falls on you

For making me feel that a butterfly is more beautiful than a moth 

In response to the following prompts:
