I am a monarch I haven't always been this way I hide among the flowers in plain view Inaudible from a distance Indiscernible to the unobservant I am camouflaged by the Earth But when I spread my wings, There is nothing as beautiful
I am a monarch A silent governess, I rule from the trenches Unbeknownst to the governed. I rule with empathy and patience I do not give a **** About your blind loyalty or compensation
I only wish to watch others Learn to spread their wings too.
I am a monarch. I say this as if I have something to prove. Though only to myself Do I need to remind Over and over again, Until these words make sense Coming from my lips, Until I feel my impossibly small body Flutter from the Earth--
