POEM| Be a Butterfly

Leeches
stretch you thin
and leave you out to dry

Roaches
disgust you
and make you wish they didn’t exist

Don’t be a leech or roach

Be a butterfly
and spread joy
everywhere you go

Written by Mariam Shittu

I came home today to a dead roach, and that roach inspired this poem.
