Butterfly & Bomb

A dynamic person

Can be fragile

Like a butterfly

Learning

Growing

Careful not to transform

Too soon

Or

They can be fragile

Like a bomb

Explosive

Self-destructive

Putting themselves

In an early tomb

I have known both kinds

I am both kinds

And the truth is

There is a very small fraction

Of time and space

That separates

The two
