the butterfly and the dragon


I am not what you see
On the outside
Your eyes…indeed, they deceive you
By default, I’m either more kind
Or more cruel
Than I appear
To be
It is not a statement against your good judgment
Rest well knowing that I harbor not the slightest care
About what you think
As you decide
What you think
But it could be a mark against your judgment
Should your assumption be wrong
It could be life changing
For you
Were you to imagine me a butterfly
Only to find a dragon
Or run from a lion
When you’ve been looking upon a lamb all along
