The Corporate Swallowtail (Butterfly Cinquain)

Wanting
to spread my wings
and fly free from this place--
to release my mind from this toil.
My soul
longs to shine, to be seen and heard.
Bound by expectation,
my heart sighs deep
and weeps.

Note: A butterfly cinquain is a poem comprised of 9 lines with a syllable structure of: 2-4-6-8-2-8-6-4-2.
