Handler's Note:
This is a blog created by Julienne Ambrosi to be used as a platform for her poetry. Julienne's mind is almost always running, leaving her with a million ideas but no oral way to share them (this is due to the fact that she has very very bad social anxiety and she is barely capable of speaking to other people). Because of this, starting a poetry blog seemed like a really beneficial way of putting her emotions out there without having to own them herself.

Her blog is called "Farfalla Papillon," which translates to, "Butterfly (Italian) Butterfly (French)." (Julienne is intrigued by the idea of flight, leading her mind to often wander to the lives of butterflies. She has also been referenced to as a butterfly with a broken wing. So obviously, butterfly butterfly is a very suitable blog title).

She also goes by a pen name, Mariposa (I'll let you guess what this means), which means that any character who reads the blog will not know that it was written by Julienne. Now, I may be open to plots in which this is not the case but for now the blog can be read by anyone but they will not know that it is Julienne who has authored it. Got it? Good!

If I can think of any other useful information regarding Julienne's blog, I will edit it into this post. Otherwise, happy reading!

-The Right to Flight-

Has a goose ever asked a dove,
"Why are we not shown equivalent love?"
How can one fly yet the other is stuck
and chained to the grass he sleeps on

Has a woman ever asked a man,
"Should it matter who's s'posed to or simply who can?"
Why do they think that strength is from size
and knowledge is from circumstance?

Has a donkey ever been asked by a mule,
"How am I the target of such ridicule?"
How can we create what we cannot respect
and maintain the lives that we cannot protect?

Who decided who lives and who dies?
The pandas, the bees, or the butterflies?
The greed of this world says "keep it all"
and yet it does nothing when it sees us fall

When did the heart become something to miss?
Did it fall through the drain with compassion and bliss?
Whatever has happened, answer me this:

Do geese have the right to fly?

[Title in Process]

Caterpillar to Butterfly.
An effortless transition:
You are wingless.
You are hungry.
You are captive.
You are tired.
You are winged.
You are freed.

How does it feel to become yourself so suddenly?
To feel your identity surface without breaking sweat
What is it like for your notion of self-worth
to be so natural?

Chameleon to chameleon.
Effortless and ingenuine:
You are forest.
You are river.
You are sunshine.
You are quicksand.
You are infrequent
Incapable of stability.

It is the uncertainty of never knowing the difference
between who you are in this moment
And who you will be in five moments from now.

Wondering if brown will turn to burgundy to ginger
If blue will all of a sudden become seafoam.

It is knowing the answer to all of these questions
but wishing with all of your heart
That you didn’t.

Change in The World

I am not the change that I wish to see in the world
Is there a change that I wish to see in the world?
How can I wish for a change in the world
If I can barely control the changes in myself?

How could a person wish for such an inconsistency?
Changing the world that they have known
For the entirety of their lifetime?
Do they wish to forget every thing that this world has done?

Does this world mean nothing?
Will it mean nothing once it has changed?
What is change?

What is change?
Am I change?
Are you change?
Are we change?

What is the change that you wish to see in the world?
How do you obtain it?


I don't believe that I will ever know

But perhaps that will change

But a simple Moth

I have searched for the light
For such an enormity of my life
And I am no more than a moth
Tethered to the flame that has never come
Yearning for the flame that will never come

A moth does not need light to survive
They follow the light because it looks nice
They follow the light because it looks safe
I follow the light because it looks like hope
I follow the light because it looks like home

But who am I, but a simple moth
Who I am I to know what is to come
That this flame of hope
This flame of life
Has lead me to the land of butterflies

Butterflies whose beauty could outshine mine for lightyears
Butterflies who do not exist so they can dry off my tears
Butterflies who push aside anything labeled as different
Butterflies who throw moths away for fear that we cannot fit in

But what if I, a simple moth
Wish to become a butterfly?
Will I be accepted then
Or am I still not one of them

Perhaps they will take my light away
For moths wander in the dark
And in the dark I shall stay

What do you say?

What do you say to the mother who loses her child
The moment that her child is born?

What do you say to the father who dismisses his daughter?
Acceptance is difficult; it's easier to mourn

What do you tell the daughter who cannot understand
That this ability, this curse was not part of their plan

What do you tell the freak who detrimental to society?
Abandoned and forgotten because her caretakers refuse to see

The beauty in uncertainty; the elegance in difference
Why is there a precedent that we must succumb to circumstance?

If I ever have a daughter I will love her for her flaws
I will hold her and protect her and love her just because

There is no rhyme or reason to acceptance or the care
You love because you love someone not because they're there.

I will tell the broken girl that she is not alone
Because I never wish upon anyone
The world that I have known

I see your faces in my dreams
Your eyes ignite in subtle screams
I don't know who you thought I'd be
But you were never expecting me

You shake my hand and say hello
As if I am someone you don't know
I introduce myself even so
And the only word from your lips is no

Your smile glimmers and you greet me
My smile shudders and I want you to see
That through every meeting 1, 2, 3
It has always been just you in me

But instead you run away
Knowing there is no thing I can say

Because I am unfixable
My curse is unbreakable

And my curse is your curse
Whenever you greet me

Identity Crisis

An identity crisis is a right of passage
Every normal person goes through it
That phase in which you change your hairstyle
Or you wear a red dress instead of your usual black
It is when you wonder if you are becoming someone else
It is when you realise that you could turn back if you wanted to

An identity crisis is a bit different than that
An identity crisis is when you fear that you are losing yourself
When your nose shrinks and you grow three inches in five minutes
When the face in the mirror is not yourself
And you wonder if you've ever seen yourself in the mirror
And you wonder who you are
If you've ever known who you are

An identity crisis is when your mother screams at the sight
of the stranger who had just awoken from her daughter's bed
When your father cannot love the chameleon that you have become
When new friends can never become old friends
When you are the new kid in school at least once a month

A new chapter in life is when you grow into a new version of yourself

An identity crisis is when you never had a you to grow into in the first place

The caged bird

Have you ever been posed the question,
"How does the caged bird sing?

Have you wondered how a beauty can shine
In spite of everything

Does she whistle through the muzzle
Or does she lament underneath the chains

Does her passion fuel a fire that boils
And accelerates her veins

Will her songs be heard from the metal
Or will they drown behind the steel

Will the caged bird stay inside her bars
Or will she be revealed?

He told me once, that he would never part my way
That we were two birds born of the same feather
Who, had somehow found our ways backward
Back into the pieces of who we'd once been so long ago

He told me that he's known me before he's even known me
and there was no response more seemingly appropriate than belief
Because I had never gone far enough back in my mind to know any truer
But I did believe him. I thought I did. I assumed that if he'd known me, I'd known him as well.

And then one night without a word, I wondered downward to where I knew he'd be
And he was not there
And I was lost
Because I did not know where he was
And I did not know him

And I now wonder

If he's ever known me
